Setting up SSL on Shoutcast V2
« on: December 19, 2016, 04:11:37 pm »
Hi,

We are trying to fix an issue with our HTTPS site not being able to handle a Shoutcast V2 script that pulls song info from the metadata. The script error points to mixed content between HTTPS site an HTTP Shoutcast V2 link. 

I am able to play the stream on the website, but I just can't pull any info metadata from its XML file without that conflict. Is there a possible workaround other than implementing SSL on that Shoutcast stream or creating a proxy to allow the port to run over SSL?

Your feedback would be highly appreciated.

SHOUTcast doesn't support SSL. To prevent your Errors, just use Centovas API to receive Data from an Station.

I am using a theme with a hard coded script that pulls metadata from V2 stations then displays in on my website. That script gets blocked with a mixed content error message. So it is looking for a stream ip and port that runs over SSL to allow it to rip the metadata from the server XML file then display it on the site.

When will this issue be fixed? Its time for Centova to catch up with the rest of the world. We need

I'm still stuck with this issue. Some of the online techniques to secure a Shoutcast stream seems very straightfoward, but I am still having no luck even with outside help.  I believe Apple is making recommendations for stream providers to secure their audio on iOS products and broadcasters are concerned over stream info leaks. 

Any one who is interested in doing contract work to secure an audio stream, please PM me.

As of the time of writing this, Shoutcast 2 doesn't support SSL streaming as Icecast 2 does.

This is not something that you can do without direct support from the underlying software unfortunately.

Hi,

I was able to secure everything, but I have the same problem with the mix content. The only problem is my Shoutcast V2 server is grabbing some images from http URLs and there's no way for me to change it.

Album covers are coming from this domain: http://is4.mzstatic.com/

Right now I had to turn off the SSL protocol because of this problem.
