I want to redirect http urls in youtube videos to https. youtube's videos are from googlevideo.com so I want to use https instead of http

http://r8---sn-qxau5-btqs.googlevideo.com... to https://r8---sn-qxau5-btqs.googlevideo.com...

(r8---sn-qxau5-btqs) may changes in every video

I tried HTTPS Everywhere and made this rule:

"<ruleset name="googlevideo">
<target host="*.googlevideo.com" />

<rule from="http://([^@:/][^/:@])\.googlevideo\.com/" to="https://$1.googlevideo.com"/>

but it didn't work.

my OS: Linux

browser: Firefox
