https URL doesn't work in player object

Post by Martin Koob » Sat May 15, 2010 8:53 pm

I tried to set the filename of a player object to the url for a movie which
is on an ssl protected server
( I will use a fake url here for an example.)

ie https://www.mysecuresite.com/movie/mymovie.mov

The movie does not load

If I set the filename of the player by
script to an https url it will return "could not create movie reference"

If I put open the same URL in a revbrowser window it works
ie.

Code: Select all

put revBrowserOpen(the windowID of this stack, \
"https://www.mysecuresite.com/movie/mymovie.mov") into tBrowserId
If I set the filename of an image object to an image on an ssl protected
server it works
ie. https://www.mysecuresite.com/movie/myimage.png

So it seems that only the player object is having problems with the https url.

Is there something else I need to do or is this a bug. I searched the
Rev Quality Control Center and I can't find a mention of this as a bug.
