does somebody from the enlighted part of the audience has an idea, why this 
command fails:

I must be missing something essential..

Unfortunately the command fetched from rtmpsrv with adjusted -C argument 
behaves the same way, hence I may need to ask there. Let me know your opinion.

I'm using cloned versions of git:// and 
git:// from today here.
