 I have a fresh build of ffmpeg/ffprobe and this works on my Arch linux

 It appears to actually be something with the server itself reporting that
 it doesn't have the asset. I tested with the vimeo link in curl (it is a
 dead link now, but that is to be expected after weeks) and with the
 hardcoded ip address link with ffmpeg and I cannot reproduce your error.

 I did notice that in the bottom of the first link, it was a 403 indicating
 that it's not an issue with getting to the material but a matter of
 authentication not succeeding. With the second potential truncation, that
 appears to be in the logging as the final line has the full output.

 I'm going to close this one as it appears to be in the source material and
 not FFMPEG, but please feel free to reopen if I'm wrong and you have some
 more information which I might be missing.
