When I paste a link like http://www.xkcd.com/975 on chat, it promptly oneboxes the comic. However if I post the HTTPS version of that https://www.xkcd.com/975 it doesn't. This is true for all other oneboxable links from sites that let you access through HTTPS like YouTube.

Can we get HTTPS links oneboxed as well?

    Especially now that SE sites, such as Stack Overflow, support HTTPS - there will be a lot of question links with HTTPS...
