HTML5 player not working
Jul. 20, 2020
A number of listeners have noticed that the HTML 5 player no longer works in their browser. This has only been a problem with Chrome and the new Edge browser, which is based on Chrome. An update went out to these browsers that causes a conflict with our streaming. The content at Organlive.com is served over a secure HTTPS connection. This helps keep your username, password, and email secure. The audio stream that the website gathers the audio from is served over an unencoded HTTP connection. This is because the data is one-way, there is nothing of your personal information included in that stream, and encoding the data adds unnecessary overhead to the streaming process. The latest versions of these browsers do not like to mix HTTPS and HTTP, so it ignores the audio stream.
How to fix it? It's not difficult. First, for Edge, click on Settings from the menu in the top right, and then select Site permissions on the left side. Scroll all the way down to click on Insecure content. Next to Allow, click add, and then put http://play.organlive.com:7000 in the box (Htpp://play2.organlive.com:7000) for EU servers).Fixing this in Chrome is a little simpler. Go to Organlive.com (you're there now!), and click on the little Lock icon next to site URL in the browser address bar, and then click on Site Settings. From there scroll way down to Insecure Content, and just select allow on the right side. That's all you need to do there.
