Brightcove troubleshooting note

Brightcove is a third-party video hosting provider that is often used. Their native JavaScript embed code does not support HTTPS. While it will work inside MindTouch, some customers will see an issue in some modern browsers when accessing their MindTouch site over HTTPS. This is because of the mixed content type (HTTP vs HTTPS) issue that occurs because Brightcove does not natively support HTTPS references to their videos.
