If you need to stream hls on your website as https, first we need to make sure nginx works with https. I have a pfx certificate from GlobalSign for my domain. I need to export certificate and key from that pfx file and remove the passphrase from the key. I need to use OpenSSL to export and convert my certificate. Lets do this step by step.

Download OpenSSL from https://indy.fulgan.com/SSL/

Extract the OpenSSL folder to C and name the folder as openssl.  

Run OpenSSL from Command Prompt as Administrator


1. Take the file you exported (e.g. certname.pfx) and copy it to a system where you have OpenSSL installed. Note: the *.pfx file is in PKCS#12 format and includes both the certificate and the private key.

2. Run the following command to export the private key:

openssl pkcs12 -in certname.pfx -nocerts -out key.pem -nodes

3. Run the following command to export the certificate:

openssl pkcs12 -in certname.pfx -nokeys -out cert.pem

4. Run the following command to remove the passphrase from the private key:

openssl rsa -in key.pem -out server.key


Rename the pem and key file as yourserver.yourdomain.pem and yourserver.yourdomain.key After this, we need to place our certificate and key to the correct locations on nginx server.

yourserver.yourdomain.pem will be copied to /etc/ssl/certs

# cp servername.mydomain.pem /etc/ssl/certs

yourserver.yourdomain.key will be copied to /etc/ssl/private

# cp servername.mydomain.key /etc/ssl/private  





 Then modify nginx.conf and change https part 


# HTTPS server server { listen       443 ssl; server_name  servername.yourdomain.com; ssl on; ssl_certificate     /etc/ssl/certs/servername.yourdomain.com.pem; ssl_certificate_key  /etc/ssl/private/servername.yourdomain.com.key;    ssl_session_cache   shared:SSL:1m; ssl_session_timeout  5m;        ssl_ciphers  HIGH:!aNULL:!MD5; ssl_prefer_server_ciphers  on; location / { root   html; index  index.html index.htm; } } }  



Save it.




chmod 640 /etc/ssl/private/servername.yourdomain.com.key
sudo service nginx restart
sudo ufw allow 443



If you havent bought the domain yet, you can test your https from another client PC by modifying the host file on the client pc.

Add this entry to your host file: localIPAddress servername.yourdomain.com

Then ping to servername.yourdomain.com  on the client PC.

And use your browser to check if you can reach the web site by using https://servername.yourdomain.com





Now https works with Nginx but we need to add hls part to https portion in nginx.conf. 


 http and https can work at the same time. So just modify portion for https like below.


    server {
        listen       443 ssl;
        server_name  servername.yourdomain.com;
	ssl		on;
       ssl_certificate      /etc/ssl/certs/servername.yourdomain.com.pem;
        ssl_certificate_key  /etc/ssl/private/servername.yourdomain.com.key;
ssl_session_cache shared:SSL:1m; ssl_session_timeout 5m; ssl_ciphers HIGH:!aNULL:!MD5; ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on; location /hls { # Serve HLS fragments types { application/vnd.apple.mpegurl m3u8; video/mp2t ts; } root /tmp/; add_header Cache-Control no-cache; add_header 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' '*'; } location / { root html; index index.html index.htm; } }



 You can now change the source address on your videojs player and watch your hls stream over https by using the url below.



 Enjoy it :)
