The HTTPS monitor, which is required to auto detect and download video streamed over https is a local proxy.
This can be switched on and off via the Settings > Internet Downloads > Monitor HTTPS/SSL.
When off though https streams will not be detected and downloaded.
The HTTPS/SSL monitor is a proxy. If you don't want to use it switch it off using Settings > Internet Downloads > Monitor HTTPS/SSL.
If the HTTPS/SSL monitor is not working on your machine (which can happen if you manually change the proxy settings whilst AUTO is on), try the following:
1. Close JMR
2. Close all browsers
3. Open IE and ensure the proxy is disabled Internet Options > Connections > Click LAN Settings Button > Ensure Use Proxy Server is unchecked > Click OK etc to close dialog and close IE
4. Uninstall JMR and ensure the "Delete settings and libraray" is checked
5. Resinall JMR
If your still having issues after that have a look through some of the FAQ's and see if that helps:
If you still can't get it to work do the following to generate debug logs so we can see whats going on following the steps here: https://support.jaksta.com/discussions/topics/6000009063. At step three just try to go to a webpage that wont load when AUTO is on.
Again, thanks for your answer. Unfortunately I'm not sure if we are on the same page.
When I disable the HTTPS/SSL monitor Jaksta stops finding stream relevant to my interest. This is not a question of "If you don't want to use it [...]". Of course I _want_ to use it.
What I don't want is Jaksta to use/enable IE proxy settings, therefore making them system-wide, therefore forcing other programs to use it.
If you _want_ to capture HTTPS streams then the proxy is required. HTTPS is encrypted and is passed through a proxy to determine what it is - eg see if its audio or video that should be downloaded.
The proxy is only enabled if the setting Settings > Internet Downloads > Monitor HTTPS/SSL is on and AUTO monitoring is on. Otherwise no proxy is in place.
