Hello.

I share files that are accessible through direct URL. All kinds of files, (.txt, .zip, .png, .mp3, .wav, etc)

For some reasons, when I am in a browser, I can download all files when I am in HTTP.
But when I try in HTTPS it does not work for " music " files. I would get the error below.

I don't get the error for images, text, zip files .. only for audio files.

So if I try HTTPS / HTTP for a text file, I will be able to access the file.
But for a "mp3" for example. The browser will play the file in HTTPS, but will give me the error above in HTTP.

I can't find anything on Google that would explain that behaviour.

Anyone understands that situation?
Thanks.

When you put URLs for your mp3 file on your website then they are HTTP or HTTPS?

I handle both HTTP and HTTPS in IIS.

For text/image/zip/ other types it works well.

Example (these would both work) :
Code:
http://www.mydomain.com/mytextfile.txt
https://www.mydomain.com/mytextfile.txt

But for audio files (mp3 / wav):
Code:
http://www.mydomain.com/myaudiofile.mp3
https://www.mydomain.com/myaudiofile.mp3
Only the "https" would work. The other would give me an error. Pretty weird that for audio file, the non-secured access return an error.

IIS? is your website still using ASP ?

Did you add redirect code in htaccess to auto redirect from HTTP to HTTPS for all links?

There is no website. Its just a directory containing various files.
My domain points to a windows server and on that server in IIS I configured an application with bindings for both HTTP (80) and HTTPS (443).

Maybe @Jerry is right, @DoumB21 may need to try to upload another file mp3 and retest if it works or not.
