    OP Checking in....

    Interesting series of posts since I last checked in. So it seems like Tiny LMS won't redirect using https like newer full versions of LMS.

    Gary, yes, a pCP/Rpi is a good fallback (that I have been avoiding), and I may get one and set it up for him eventually. Even if I do, the method you outlined is a great way for me to share favorites, repair broken links, or even replace links with higher quality streams if the come available. I can handle the "technical" part of keeping his streams alive, adding new. Wi a RPI, he could also listen to the Radio Paradise FLAC stream instead of the 320k. There are allot of benefits.

    In the mean time, Paul, others, I am not really up on services that may allow hosting via http. I have sort of turned my back/avoided cloud storage, kind of old school in that regard. Is that something that might be available? Are their any that you know of? Or, should I just avoid due to the less secure nature of http? Maybe it's a big fight for a small win....

    Drop box is the only thing like this that I use, mostly for sharing with friends.

    Thanks everyone;
    Jim

    Most likely TinyLMS is failing the https request, trying to get http,
    which in turn is re-directed to https by Dropbox.

    I am not savvy in the ways of http and https, but Michael's comment above - TinyLMS https fails->Tries http->dropbox redirects to https -> too many redirect errors....

    What about just editing the link to http, and letting dropbox redirect it? It would bypass the first two steps above? I am thinking maybe if dropbox does the only redirection (again, I am not one with knowledge in this area )

    I tried it on a windows PC in chrome (edited the dropbox link to http) and it was redirected (by dropbox I assume) to https and gave me the file?

    Is it possible that this might work? I don't have tinyLMS to test, but could try it with my friend, why not...

    Tiny LMS - adding Favorites

    Dropbox would re-direct to https, which TinyLMS would fail to load,
    trying http instead, which Dropbox would re-direct... and so on.

    thanks for the clarification Michael...so, I still wonder (not being knowledgeable in this area) is there a way/service available to host a file http? I know I could just get my friend a pi based system, but just exploring all of the options

    I'm sure there is, as Paul Webster did it on his server (earlier in this thread) and it worked. But his is probably a private server. I suspect any commercial hosting sites are all using https by now. Running an rPi is easier than hosting your own private 24/7 server I suspect.
    Home: VBA2.5 4TB or rPi4B/pCP6.1/4TB>LMS 7.9.3>Transporter, Touch, Boom, Radio (all ethernet)
    Cottage: rPi4B/pCP6.1/4TB>LMS 7.9.3>Touch>Benchmark DAC I, Boom, Radio w/Battery (ethernet except Radio WIFI)
    Office: Win10(64)>foobar2000
    The Wild: rPi3B+/pCP4.0, hifiberry Dac+Pro, 4TB USB (LMS & Squeezelite)
    Controllers: iPhone11 & iPadAir3 (iPeng), CONTROLLER, or SqueezePlay 7.8 on Win10(64)
    Files: Ripping: dbpoweramp > FLAC; Post-rip: mp3tag, PerfectTunes; Streaming: Spotify

    thanks gary, yea, I saw that Paul was successful. Even if it isnt good new for tinyLMS, it's good to know what works and what doesn't. I just asked about commercial options for http host as I know that dropbox isn't the only game in town (just the only one I use). Just wondering if someone knew of one.

    I suspect your are right, probably time to build a pi system for him. Even with that though, your solution is terrific for sharing/maintaining favorites, which I'll use moving forward. It's a great way to share favorite station with others in a tidy package.

    I have a web site hosted on a large well known hosting provider ... they offer one free https certificate as part of the hosting deal but can also run a web site from it with regular http.

    I have no problem hosting the .opml for the 2 people here but updating the contents becomes a bit more complicated.
    I suppose I could put a small PHP script in place allows a opml file to be uploaded and make it require a password that is only available to the editor.

    I appreciate the offer Paul, but I don't want to impose or complicate things on your side or mine. I'll probably end up going the pi route, after all, who doesn't want to build another pi system? I can also search around a bit, but I realize I am pandering to an old, limited system (TinyLMS). There is so much that $50 for a pi server running the latest LMS can offer my friend. In fact it should make long distance tech support much easier for me!

    Thank also for the help in diagnosing the answer regarding tiny LMS. We all learned something

    Cheers;
    Jim
