    My website runs from a remote VPS.
    The mp3 track was manually set in WIMPY script (installed in website root directory) and is streamed from MEGA.NZ audio storage online server :

    Since I installed a self-signed SSL certificate in the "apache directives" section of my website, the WIMPY PLAYER (one mp3 track only) is still correctly displayed, but does not launch. Beside the URL field, an “information“ icon when clicked, explains to the visitor that some contents were prevented to run because this site is not fully secured.

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
    RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

    (website html head section)

    <!-- Wimpy Engine (you only need one of these) -->
    <script src="/wimpy/wimpy.js"></script>
    (website page html body section)
    <!-- Wimpy Player -->
    <div data-wimpyplayer data-skin="/wimpy/wimpy.skins/038.tsv" data-autoPlay=1 data-media='[{"title":"Tick tack","file":"!KDQxQIqA!WP......"}]'></div>

    *** QUESTIONS ***
    How can I make the self-signed SSL certificate to accept the audio player ?
    Is there a proper way to do so, adding something in the apache directive ?

    Means you have http links. Replace them with httpS.

    Not at all ! the page URL already contains “https“
    This means that problem is else where... ??

    I mean http links in the contents of that page.

    it may be the self-signed certificate. to eliminate that as a potential problem, you could try using a full, authenticated certificate. if you don't want to pay for one, you can use a letsencrypt one. just apply it to that website instead of the self-signed one.
    obviously, there's traffic back and forth between your vps and the server. it could be your vps is waiting for the server to accept the self-signed certificate, which it can't do.

    Thanks for both your replies.
    The player works fine now, and a green lock shows up beside the URL address in SSL mode “https“ !
