CDN via HTTPS?

Postby thattolleyguy » Wed Aug 24, 2016 8:05 pm

Amazon just launched their audio streaming API for Alexa Skills Kit. In order to stream audio the source must be accessed via https. I'm curious if there's anyway to access general conference, scriptures and other CDN content via HTTPS? If not, is there anyway to request it? I could see this being a very useful way to access gospel library audio content. Thanks!

It works, but the certificate is invalid which I don't think Amazon will allow when streaming. I'll give it a try though. Thanks!

The certificate being used doesn't match the website.

So I've attempted to make use of these URLs but with the invalid certificate it won't work. Are there any channels I can go down to try and get this changed? I really think this is a great option for gospel library content. My kids for example are to young to read and don't have their own digital devices but they could use Alexa services to listen to scriptures and general conference talks. Is there anyone who might be able to help? Thanks.

You could use the feedback link on the main lds.org page.

I ran into the same problem. Many of the church's sites can be reached using a secure connection, *except* media2.ldscdn.org:
https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere/atlas/domains/ldscdn.org.html

I made a comment on the talk page of https://tech.lds.org/wiki/LDS_Music_external_resources, as it has links to media2.ldscdn.org using HTTPS (that then hit the certificate error). I also submitted feedback through the lds.org site. Hopefully one of the two gets noticed so the certificate can be fixed.

Yeah. I've tried working through some contributors I know work for the church and have yet to hear any feedback. I've also gone through the process of making a licensing request, but that can take up to 6 weeks. I guess we'll just wait and see
