Streaming with FFMPEG may not work when URL contains "definst"

Some RTMP stream URLs may be designed for streaming specifically with FMLE (Flash Media Live Encoder) and may need to be adjusted in order to work with FFMPEG
which is the default streaming method in vMix.

For example the following stream information:
URL: rtmp://example.com/example/_definst_/doPublish=ABCDEFG
Should be changed to the following:
URL: rtmp://example.com/example?doPublish=ABCDEFG
Another type of URL may look like:
URL: rtmp://example.com/origin/_definst_/stream/stream?username=abc&password=def
Change this to:
URL: rtmp://example.com/origin/stream/stream?username=abc&password=def
(Removing the _definst_ portion of the URL)
