> But the request doesn't actually include my cookie:

See docs for http in ffmpeg-protocols.

> At the very least, each cookie must specify a value along with a path and domain.  HTTP requests that match both the domain and path will automatically include the cookie value in the HTTP Cookie header field. Multiple cookies can be delimited by a newline.
> The required syntax to play a stream specifying a cookie is:
>   ffplay -cookies "nlqptid=nltid=tsn; path=/; domain=somedomain.com;” http://somedomain.com/somestream.m3u8
