Widget Macro with SSL Confluence site

How can we use Widget Macro on SSL Confluence site without big red mixed content warnings across browser URL bar?

For instance, embedding a youtube video with widget macro always causes mixed content warnings on that page.

This widget could not be displayed.

Update, this is fixed in the latest version (for youtube atleast).

Best solution I've come up with for this is to create a user macro. I eventually gave up on Widget Connector and logged this bug... https://studio.plugins.atlassian.com/browse/WC-27

This is the user macro I came up with for youtube incase anyone else needs a decent solution for this...

## Macro title: YouTube Embed
## Macro has a body: N
## Output: HTML

## @param vid:title=Video ID|type=string|required=true|desc=ID for the video
## @param width:title=Width|type=int|required=false|desc=Width (default 425)
## @param height:title=Height|type=int|required=false|desc=Height (default 350)

## Check for valid width, otherwise use 425
#if (!$paramwidth)
  #set ($paramwidth=425)
## Check for valid height, otherwise use 350
#if (!$paramheight)
  #set ($paramheight=350)

<iframe class="youtube-player" type="text/html" width="$paramwidth" height="$paramheight" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/$generalUtil.escapeForHtmlAttribute($paramvid)" frameborder="0">

This widget could not be displayed.

With Widget 1.3.8 I get error ""widget: A widget Id is required!". Posted as https://ecosystem.atlassian.net/browse/WC-76. We also started using a user macro (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DISC/YouTube+user+macro) and replaced "http:" with "" (i.e. the URLs should start with "//www.youtube.com", yep that is a valid URL).
