HTTPS URL for media is saved as HTTP #17

When inserting HTTPS media, for instance a HTTPS url from YouTube, the URL is saved as HTTP. This then leads to a "mixed content" error with modern browsers, because loading HTTP content within a HTTPS context is blocked.

You can easily check this by creating and saving a HTTPS encrypted media object. When editing a youtube video you will see that the iframe is pointing to a HTTP url, like this:

...iframe width="360" height="240" src="" frameborder=0></iframe...

Instead of

...iframe width="360" height="240" src="httpS://" frameborder=0></iframe...

Moodle: 3.3.4 (Build: 20180118)
Exabis Portfolio: 4.6.2 (Build: 2017121101)

Steps to reproduce

  • activate the exabis portfolio block in a course
  • create a new personal/custom view
  • insert a HTTPS URL, for instance:
  • save the media object
  • edit the media object
  • confirm that the URL for the iframe has been rewritten to unencrypted HTTP
