Add support to stream audio from SSL on ports other than 443
Can support be added to the AudioPlayer interface to allow streaming over SSL on ports other than 443? Currently streaming is limited to ONLY port 443 (the standard SSL port), but there should be no reason that other ports cannot also be supported.
This limitation makes it so that services hosted from behind a firewall can no longer use that port (even when port forwarding in employed).
In my case, I am hosting a streaming media server from behind my firewall, however I would like to have a secure website which I also host from the same IP address. My media server doesn't not stream over 443, but I used port forwarding to force port 443 from my public IP address to the SSL port of my service. This however prevents me from hosting my secure website via 443 unless I change the URLs to include a different port number, which is not preferred for an HTTPS service.
To be clear, this would be a change to the requirements as stated here ...

I agree. Most stream hosting companies use a separate stream server on a separate port number for each customer, therefore these streams cannot have their streams on Alexa devices. It is a ridiculous requirement. SSL works on all ports and should be allowed to here.
