[FFmpeg-user] Custom User Agent Header not working

My command:
ffmpeg.exe -protocol_whitelist file,http,https,tcp,tls,crypto -user-agent
"Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like
Gecko) Chrome/79.0.3945.130 Safari/537.36" -i "local.m3u8" "out.mp4"
I simply have a server that logs the header on
It outputs:
{ 'user-agent': 'Lavf/58.29.100',
  accept: '*/*',
  connection: 'keep-alive',
  host: '',
  'icy-metadata': '1' }
The user agent has not changed to the one in the command.
Why is that?
