HTTPS broadcasting
« on: October 13, 2015, 02:25:40 am »
Nowadays more and more web sites use the HTTPS protocol to serve web pages. If the page includes a HTTP stream, browser gives a warning about unsecure content, and that's not good.

Icecast offers broadcasting over the HTTPS protocol and we manually enable this feature for our customers, so, technically, this is possible, at least for Icecast (just a few lines in config).

Can this feature be incorporated into Centovacast? There are few settings needed:
* (required) Certificate path (this one can reside in admin's area and be global for the whole server)
* (optional) HTTPS port. Currently we use client's port number + 10000, so maybe no confifuration option is needed if it's calculated in a similar manner
* (optional) Enable SSL. This can be simply be considered "always on".

I actually submitted a ticket/feature request for this too. I have both IceCast SSL and I've enabled Nginx-based SSL proxying for IceCast (on port 443) too, for users who are able to use standard ports (usually via a proxy), but have high ports blocked.

So, +1 from me too. :)

Voted! Note that HTTPS is also useful for any iOS9 developers who want to conform to Apple's new Application Transport Security guidelines without using an exception for the stream.

I enabled HTTPS via the Nginx proxy. I'm now trying to configure native SSL for Icecast, but I get the following error:

Code: [Select]
INFO connection/get_ssl_certificate No SSL capability
Did you replace the Icecast binary on your CentovaCast box to get this to work?

Centova loads perfectly fine over https.

Your right, as it would be nice to actually have our streams do the same!

VIVA LA ENCRYPTION!

This SHOULD NOT be a option to be voted on. THIS SHOULD BE A REQUIRED FEATURE AND FULLY SUPPORTED BY DEFAULT!!!!!!

It has been an entire year ... NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM

Sorry Centova .. I think its time for us to move on to another solution.

Voted. I think that this feature is essential nowadays...
