Streaming Videos from Azure Blob Storage

Azure Storage Account

This post is about how to stream videos from Azure Blob storage. Recently some one asked on tweet - about how to stream videos from azure storage account. Since in one of my project I was also loading videos from azure blob, I thought I will explore it a little bit. In the project I am displaying the video in <video> tag. So without downloading the full video files, users won’t be able to play it. And even if users are not playing the video, it will always download the full video. Here is the network tab - with 6 video files with 25 MB.

August 11, 2022 by Anuraj

AspNetCore DotNetCore MinimalApi

This post is about how to implement api versioning in ASP.NET Core 6.0 Minimal APIs. Earlier Minimal APIs versioning was not supported. Recently ASP.NET Core team introduced versioning in ASP.NET Core Minimal APIs. To implement it, first we need to create a Web API with Minimal API - we need .NET 6.0 or more to do this. Since I installed .NET 7 Preview versions, I am using the --framework version parameter. We can create web api with the command like this - dotnet new webapi -o WeatherForecastApi -minimal --framework net6.0. Once it is done, we need to add reference of Asp.Versioning.Http version 6.0.0-preview.3 using the command dotnet add package Asp.Versioning.Http --version 6.0.0-preview.3.
