Are there any plans to provide HTTPS service for videos hosted on screencast.com. Today I'm required to for my website to be HTTP, otherwise when I link to embedded video on screencast I get a pop-up message that there are both secure and non-secure items on the site. Is anyone else encountering this?

I'm happy to announce that the Screencast team has been working on bringing HTTPS to Screencast.com. Today, we are in the early phases of rolling it out and testing it out on a larger scale.

This should bring an added level of security between Screencast.com and your browser. For example, it can help prevent injected ads from some ISPs and attacks from malicious entities.

HTTPS is also requirement for many new browser features. So it was definitely something we wanted to bring to our customers. :)

Currently you'll need to add "https://" to your URLs yourself. We will flip the switch as soon as we can. Prior to that, we'll be evaluating how the servers are handling the extra load.

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.
