HTTPS broken

tomyuntomyun Posts: 47Members ✭✭

HTTP.Request() to HTTPS URLs result into an error:

URLError: <urlopen error [SSL: SSLV3_ALERT_HANDSHAKE_FAILURE] sslv3 alert handshake failure (_ssl.c:590)>

Seems like this has been an outstanding issue for sometime which requires an update for the built-in Python to at least 2.7.9 (which was released in 2014).


Since more and more websites are migrating to HTTPS by default, I'd say this could be a deal breaker for many channel plugins for Plex. Does anyone know whether Plex has a plan to address this issue?
