I'm using a python script I wrote to upload files to sound-cloud for the last year and it was working fine but 2 days ago I started receiving the following error

requests.exceptions.SSLError: [Errno 1] _ssl.c:507: error:14077410:SSL routines: SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:sslv3 alert handshake failure

detail error screenshot is attached...

can anyone please help me ?

I am having the exact same problem not too long ago with the Kodi Soundcloud Plugin. I am running Kodi on Android but not the latest version, but Jarvis (v16). What version of python are you using? In researching the problem, I read that you need to have a certain version of python because the SSL connection is obsoleted.
