SSL support for FFMPEG

I’m sorry if this has been posted or discussed before, but I couldn’t find anything by searching the forum. Using the current OSMC build (2016.02-4) the SyFy addon in Kodi (v16 with default repo) doesn’t seem to work on a raspberryPi 3. After asking about this on the Kodi forum the addon developer indicated it is likely a problem with ffmepg not being compiled with ssl support, so videos hosted on https links won’t decode. My debug log says “FFmpeg statically linked, version: 2.8.6-kodi-2.8.6-Jarvis-16.0” in the first couple lines. Is there a way to see what compile flags were used for the integrated version of ffmepg to verify this is an ssl issue? When I run ‘which ffmpeg’ nothing is returned, but it must be buried in OSMC somewhere.

If SSL support for ffmpeg is not in the current build, it would be nice to see it in a not so distant future release.

I suspect --enable-protocol=https would probably do the trick, although I’d check with someone on the Kodi team why this hasn’t been set.
