Non-HTTPS Stream Link Breaks SSL

There is a major issue with the listen links resolving to when triggered on an SSL site. This is breaking SSL and it is affecting playback through several platforms.

The Facebook in-app browser has strict policies on playing media over SSL encrypted website sites with mixed content. If it detects the site is HTTPS and the shoutcast media stream is non-SSL, it does not play the audio. It will only play the audio over SSL in that case.

The strangest thing I am seeing is that the stream is encrypted by SSL only in the Chrome Beta mobile browser. However, it is non-SSL in all other desktop browsers and other mobile browsers including FB in-app.

Please look at the screenshots. One depicts a stream resolving to a HTTP:// link on a desktop browser and the other shows the exact same stream link resolves to HTTPS://streaming.shoutcast on Chrome Beta mobile. This same link does not play on FaceBook in-app browser because it is on an SSL site and when you click on play, it opens up as HTTP:// instead of HTTPS://

Please fix!
