Hosting on HTTPS, accessing HTTP

As I am new to both Silverlight and MMPPF I am slowly working my way through things and running into a bunch of errors, so I have a few questions here, but I'll start with my most basic.

If my server is accessed via HTTPS and I want to access a media file on another server that is hosted with HTTP, is this possible?  When I try now I get this error: 4001 AG_E_NETWORK_ERROR.  To clarify, my MMPPF player is hosted on an HTML page that is accessed at https://www.mywebsite.com/silverlightvideo.html, and the MediaSource property is set to a video that is http://thevideoIwanttoaccess.com/myvideo.wmv.  It currently won't play and ends up with the above error.  I believe it has to do with the cross-domain issues.

Thanks in advance for any and all help,

Ben

You probably already figured this out, but such access is restricted by the URL restrictions in Silverlight (why i have no idea, because some engineer didnt think for a moment perhaps?)
