On Windows we don't ship the OpenSSL code. It's dynamically linked and we tell
users to install it themselves from here
Anyway, as I already mentioned, we can rewrite these bits to use some other
library; it's nothing special. I won't bother without any clear need though,
and right now there is no need. If mplayer/ffmpeg decide to adopt librtmp,
then I'll have a reason to move ahead on that.
