If Your Site Serves Content via HTTPIf you serve your pages using only HTTP, you simply load this plugin on your page.
If Your Site Serves Content via HTTPSIf you serve any of your pages via HTTPS/SSL, you need to complete the following steps to ensure that all pages are served using HTTPS.
- Contact Brightcove Technical Support to ensure that your environment is ready to support HTML5 Media Source Extensions (MSE)-based streaming.
- For customers with mixed content conditions (refer to this Google article) on a site running over HTTPS, be sure to resolve all mixed content conditions. For example, if you are using remote streams (remote assets) with HLS, make sure that all of your remote streams (manifest/m3u8 and fragment/ts) are served via HTTPS.
- If you are using any CDN other than Ooyala, make sure that the CORS setting is enabled from that CDN. For details, see Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS).
