Firstly, your server needs to run TLS, which it doesn't. (I tried your
URL.) And when it does, the protocol will be rtsps://.

Once that is running, and ffmpeg happens to need to use client
certificates, you should look at the documentation of the "tls"
protocol's options. Check for "cafile" and "certfile".

Are you sure you didn't mean to use these for the server?
