HTTPS for Screencast?

Hi,

Wondering when is HTTPS going to be standard? 

I have thousands of embedded links in the form http://www.screencast.com/t/*******
e.g. http://www.screencast.com/t/qsMkcsbEK
and incidentally this is the form presented in Screencast.com when I grab the share link on the videos.

When these are clicked, they don't convert automatically to https://

so the customer is seeing "Not secure" in their browser.  Not good.

Can you advise please?

Thank you,

Eamonn

HTTPS is there on screencast.com

For what ever reason that have not flipped the switch to redirect to it.

For now this is what I have found. Firefox and Chrome.

Add the https:// to the screencast url(s) and it will make the secure connection.

Now here is a screwy part. If you log in with the normal link ( http://)
Your share links will be of the unsecure http but,

If you log in using https://www.screencast.com/signin.aspx or one of my links would be
https:// Screencast.com - Dubie

The share links are https also.  Go figure ??

So anyway I can only make my own assumptions as to what the hold up is. This pretty much is a requirement these days.

Ultimately the end user (my customer) should be able to put in http://www.screencast.com/**** or just screencast.com/******* and screencast should flip it automatically to https://www.screencast.com/****

As of today (May 15, 2019) we have made a change to Screencast where it will automatically redirect any requests to http://www.techsmith.com to use HTTPS.

Any share links generated by Snagit and Camtasia have already defaulted to using HTTPS for some time now.
