Instagram images pulled via HTTPS not displaying

Instagram images pulled via HTTPS not displaying.
The source of the problem is AKAMAI.
Their SSL Certificate is reported to be invalid. Thus Chrome/Firefox/Safari does not load images.

To temporarily fix this issue you can use this short code snippet:

var src = '//igcdn-photos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn/'+oldsrc.split('/').pop();

UPD: issue fixed, no need to change the urls ;)

Google Sesame

Sesame – new awesome feature from google.

Go to the link, use your phone to scan the QRcode on the page and hit the resultant url – the desktop browser will automagically redirect to your logged-in gmail without entering your password. You are in!

We constantly experiment with new and more secure authentication mechanisms, and it looks like you found one of our experiments. Note that this feature is not officially supported and may go away at any time – we’re already working on something better.
