Rtmps play url

I am unable to play the stream via rtmp as per instructions.
the stream is fine and works when i do :
ffplay -analyzeduration 1 -fflags -nobuffer -probesize 32 -sync ext ‘url.m3u8’

but error when i do :
ffplay -analyzeduration 1 -fflags -nobuffer -probesize 32 -sync ext ‘rtmps.url/’

Failed to open file ‘rtmps.url/’ or configure filtergraph

is this by design ? i just want to be able to get rtmps playback

The ffplay command for RTMPS playback is:

ffplay -analyzeduration 1 -fflags -nobuffer -probesize 32 -sync ext 'rtmps://live.cloudflare.com:443/live/<RTMPS_PLAYBACK_KEY>'

Can you verify that this is the URL format you’re using? Hard to tell from the example you shared above.
