Https should be supported as well as http. Why? Because someone browsing YouTube via https will otherwise have to modify their link to remove the s. Every time.

  • Why do you want to be able to use https? Oct 16 '12 at 12:07
  • My downvote isn't for disagreement but because this is a terribly crafted question. Oct 16 '12 at 12:12

    Yep, being a semi-kid myself, I love HTTPS, not just for the heck of it, but for the safety that it provides too.

  • @JeffreyLin Agreed. Provided one does not light-heartedly click on the "permanently make an exception"-ish thing for self-signed certificates...

  • This doesn't seem to work when using accessing Arqade via https. I made this answer which contains a video, but it does not show up on the https version of the Arqade page.
