[gst-devel] [souphttpsrc] Proxy authentication not working

I didn't mention in the last message that the proxy URI needs to be put 
in using the "proxy=URI" property or can be put in the environment 
variable http_proxy according to the souphttpsrc source code. The 
location uri would be the actual http URL you are trying to address 
beyond the proxy.

I can't tell from your message if the http://proxy is against the proxy= 
or the location= property.
