Not sure about the https part, I'd try a URl that includes the login  
as part of the URL.

No on the second part. Rule of thumb- if it plays in QuickTime Movie  
Player via a URL, it will play in SL. Most flash based video sites  
thus are out, but blip.tv works *if* you upload the original video as  
a QT .mov file. Blip provides a URl for this original source.
