JQuery Uploadify plugin with HTTPS


jQuery Uploadify plugin uses flash swf to upload files. I have implemented it on a HTTP website but now I want to do the same on HTTPS. It works fine on IE but breaks in FF by returning IO error. It must be flash security issue.

Is there any work around to get the flash working over SSL. Any ideas or suggestions are welcomed.

Initially I was using a self-signed certificate to test my uploadify with https, surely it didnt work.

Then I tried the same with CA certificate from a third party and it does work partially. I implemented Uploadify with ASP .Net with IIS 7. First time upload always fail [either first for the day or may be session, not sure which one] with http 500, due an IO at BEGIN_REQUEST on IIS 7, but, subsequent uploads work smoothly.

This issue may be specific to IIS 7 and it may work with other web servers [Its not confirmed, as I didn't try on another].

BTW due time crunch I replaced uploadify with a similar silverlight project from codeplex. Just search for 'silverlight multi file upload' on codeplex, just in case if that helps.
