Hi, I thought so too and there is the command sslcertificates which the
dictionary says is to set the list of files and folders to search for ssl
However if I set the file name of an image object to an https URL
the image will load without me specifying sslcertificates.
This is what made me think that I don't need to use the sslcertificates
Also if I use revbrowser it will open https sites and it will open a
movie hosted on an https page. So RevBrowswer is handling https sites
without me specifying the path to ssl certificates.
I am not sure if it is a bug that the https URL doesn't work in the player
or if there is something that I am supposed to do in terms of handling
or providing the path to the ssl certificates on the computer.
I am just learning about this so I have been experimenting with a few things.
open secure socket to "www.mysecuresite.com:443" with message "wasConnected"
this opens the socket which i can see with
answer the opensockets()
This shows the socket forwww.mysecuresite.com:443 as open
Still after I open the socket when I set the filename of the player to a movie
on the secure site no movie is loaded in the player
