[FFmpeg-user] Problem with ffmpeg

I tried to use latest youtube-dl to download a wild animals
video, and I got the following error message:

https protocol not found, recompile FFmpeg with openssl, gnutls or 
securetransport enabled.

youtube-dl invokes ffmpeg like this:
ffmpeg command line: ffmpeg -y -loglevel verbose -headers 
'Accept-Charset: ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7

ffmpeg version N-88150-gae100046ca-static

So, is there a static build of ffmpeg built with the libs mentioned
in the ffmpeg invocation command?

P.S: the video in question only plays with browser's built-in html5.
