YouTube Certificate for upload videos site security

I am trying to find out how to put a certificate in place on an upload site  that my company is setting up on YouTube. A user will upload a video to the site and if it is approved, then it will be displayed to the public. I am going in circles trying to find the correct help online.

When the user gets into the site they get a notice that the site is not secure, with the message AUTHORIZE ACCESS TO YOUR ACCOUNT, but they can proceed pass this page by clicking "allow access". Normally I would go to GoDaddy to get a cert but they are drawing a blank (apparently YouTube is blocked in their office).
I would appreciate any help to steer me in the direction to either solve this problem or to the help.

Unfortunately YouTube is blocked for a number of companies, including here as well.  Could you possibly upload a screenshot?  If there is a View Certificate, Details, etc. type of button click that and screenshot that as well.

So your message is a little bit different - is it maybe looking for a client authentication certificate?  What browser are you getting that message from?

Oh - no wonder it was a weird message - it was a site generated message from YouTube:)

This looks like a configuration issue with how your logon referral page (or whatever you wanna call it) is configured with YouTube.  You need to change the http:// to https:// at the beginning of the URL so it will be an SSL page.

Sorry I'm not really familiar with this further, but I would think that when you are logged into your account on YouTube for your group that there would be some kind of configuration / settings type of page?  I would check there to see if you can update the URL to point to https://cityoforlando.appspot.com/...etc. - looks like appspot has a global wildcard (*.appspot.com) to cover all their customers for SSL.
