Serving HTTP video urls on HTTPS server

I have updated jwplayer from 6.12 to 7.4.4, HTTP video urls are not able to play on HTTPS site. Its giving error Unable to fetch HTTP resource over HTTPS. With 6.12 version the HTTP video urls were working fine on HTTPS site.
Is there any setting that needs to be done in V 7.4.4

When your site is hosted using HTTPS, browsers will not let you make HTTP requests because they are not secure. Be sure to make all your JW Player requests HTTPS by adding the S to any URL you get from your account dashboard. The other option is to leave off the http: or https: and just use // in front of your URLs.

I’m not sure why this would have worked in JW6. Can you post links to your JW6 and JW7 test pages?

Follow-up question: Can HTTPS be set as the default in the dashboard or account settings (such as Secure URLs - which I kind of read as https)?

I just checked my JW Player dashboard. Every embed code I found is using the protocol-relative URL with just the // and no http: or https: which means the browser will use the same protocol as the page where the request is being made.
