Hmm, that doesnt seem to work.

-protocol_opts headers="Authorization: feb6c4ec3562a15e450fe07568e62e2f”

gave me

Error setting option protocol_opts to value headers="Authorization: feb6c4ec3562a15e450fe07568e62e2f".
Could not write header for output file #0 (incorrect codec parameters ?): Invalid argument
Error initializing output stream 0:0 --
