Some Long Overdue Fixes

Two oustanding issues are finally fixed! Both of them are related to SSL, though in different ways.

Internal VideoSift Widget Embeds

Our own embeds in comments on the site have been broken since we enabled SSL because the old widgets had insecure URLs hard-coded and insecure scripts cannot be loaded on a secure page. Those issues are fixed. For example:


The Bookmarklet (that allows you to post videos by clicking a button in your bookmark bar) never worked when you were looking at a video on a secure video host URL (e.g., YouTube) because VS was not secure, so for the same reason listed above, our insecure bookmarklet script just wouldn't load.

Now that we support SSL, I've updated the bookmarklet to use only secure URLs so it will now work from a video host using SSL or not.
