You are going to have to build it yourself. Building ffmpeg with openssl creates a non-redistributable binary according to the Slackbuild ffmpeg page
https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2 ... ia/ffmpeg/
ffmpeg README wrote:OPENSSL=yes|no (default: no), creates non-redistributable binary

It should be OK with gnutls though. I'll take a look.

Incidentally, mpv appears not to have a man page. I was just curious how you might use it with SSL anyway.

After seeing this thread, I built a more recent version of mpv (with alienbob's more recent ffmpeg, which it requires) so it's possible the missing man page is a problem with my build.

The package in the repos does have a manpage.

rst2man (from docutils) is a build dependency. This is a fresh install of 14.2 ;)

I find mpv plays video better than mplayer on this machine, but it has a similar CLI.
