Any way to get an http address from a HomeKit automation, rather than a shortcut?

I have a shortcut that uses a very simple GET URL command to control my music player, it works perfectly on my phone, but it won’t work from HomeKit automation, so I can’t call it at the push of a button HomeKit.

Fails due to an SSL error (it is a standard http interface with no option for https).

I read somewhere about using an alternative solution to throw my raspberry pi address and use curl from there to call the URL, but this fails due to the fact that it is an unknown host …

Is there any way I can pass this simple http command to a local media player when I press the HomeKit button ??
