Flowplayer, https and the streamnotfound “problem”

with 4 comments

Lately I have been working on a project which used Amazon S3 to provide videos to Flowplayer on a website. This was working superbly until we added a link to a video using the https protocol. This broke the Flowplayer on Internet explorer 6 and 7 and Safari, and we got a:

  1. streamNotFound, clip: 'https://someurl'

Solution: Amazon S3 supports both http and https, so replacing https with http solved the problem. This problem probably occurs because the web browser is unable to cache the data from the https url and therefore the Flowplayer is unable to play the video.

Interestingly enough Firefox had no problem at all running Flowplayer and https urls.
