Decrypting using pms file fails!

Hello, I have pcap created on an F5 device, with --f5 tls option. I extracted the pms using tshark command, but then when I load it into wireshark, it does not seem to decrypt traffic. What's odd is that F5 support engineer tells me it works fine for him, using the same pcap file I have sent him, and the same latest wireshark version as I am!

The tls log contains the following... any idea what could be wrong with my setup?

I found my problem! The pms is created with a command like this:

tshark -r decrypt.pcap -Y f5ethtrailer.tls.keylog -Tfields -e f5ethtrailer.tls.keylog > ./pre_master_log.pms

It turns out my file was created encoded in utf-16le (tshak man page does say it will if output is TTY on and on Windows). wireshark does not seem to like that. converting it to utf-8 fixed it.

Thanks!
