IMDB is not currently supporting HTTPS connections (https://imdb.com) so if you try to embed a video without HTTPS in your site using HTTPS you are not allow because the request is been blocked; the content must be served over HTTPS.

Sorry, videos are currently served via a standard http connection -- we don't currently support https for embedded videos. If you want to embed one of those videos on your page/site, you'll probably need to serve the page over a non-secure connection.

Is there a reason why you are not supporting https? It seems a bit irresponsible for the IMDB community.

I would like to second that. My grandmother has https support on her personal website for 3 years now. It's about time Imdb got https support as well.

I would like to "third" that. 3 years later and now Google has fully implemented HTTPS across search results, and any links I provide back to iMDb are now considered insecure and break any pages of my own website that were fully locked down due to IMDb's seemingly laggard intransigence.

HTTPS support is apparently forthcoming:
When I tried to use HTTPS URLs to access some IMDb pages, I saw a message that said IMDb "hope[s] to launch SSL (actually now TLS) access to all pages on IMDb in the very near future."

IMDB is there any update on https support?

If you're having trouble, may I suggest Let's Encrypt? https://letsencrypt.org/

I'm not sure what kind of webserver you're running but there is Let's Encrypt client support for nginx, apache and a variety of others. Plus Let's Encrypt has a "manual" option if you're running something that's not directly supported.

IMDB, do you have any updates on this?

I use a public Wifi pretty often and people are able to see everything I request. I see the login form is HTTPS, why isn't the rest of the site HTTPS?

Still nothing and Google have now implemented full HTTPS and a "naughty step" page of non-HTTPS websites accounting for at least 25% of the world's traffic here: https://transparencyreport.google.com/https/top-sites?hl=en
