Topic: Chumby can not play https streams?

http://listen.noagendastream.com/noagenda.pls
This playlist contains a single https stream - https://listen.noagendastream.com/noagenda and does not play. btplayd tries to open a file instead sad

Software version 1.7.3

Re: Chumby can not play https streams?

General purpose proxy cgi-bin script allowing https streams to be played:

proxy.cgi

#!/bin/sh

if [ "$REQUEST_METHOD" != "GET" ]; then
  echo "HTTP/1.0 501 Not implemented"
  echo "Content-type: text/plain"
  echo
  echo "Not implemented"
  exit 1
fi
# Allow local access only
if [ "$REMOTE_ADDR" != "127.0.0.1" ]; then
  echo "HTTP/1.0 403 Forbidden"
  echo "Content-type: text/plain"
  echo
  echo "Forbidden"
  exit 1
fi
# Minimum 20 chars for the url length
if [ ${#QUERY_STRING} -lt 20 ]; then
  echo "HTTP/1.0 400 Bad request"
  echo "Content-type: text/plain"
  echo
  echo "Bad request"
  exit 1
fi

exec /usr/bin/curl -0isS "$QUERY_STRING"

Now you can play https://www.foo.bar/baz as

http://localhost/cgi-bin/custom/proxy.cgi?https://www.foo.bar/baz

If you have version 1.7.2 of chumby software or earlier, you might need to add -k to the list of curl options.
