Uploading video to Azure Storage through Xamarin


I'm trying to upload a video file to my Azure Storage account. I've got it working with images, however trying to view an uploaded video gives the message "Video format or MIME-type is not supported". The video format is mp4.

I use the following code to upload:

public async Task UploadVideo(Stream video, string path) { var container = GetContainer("videos"); // Creates the container if it does not exist await CreateContainer(container); //Gets the file extension string lastPart = path.Split('.').Last(); // Uploads the video to the blob storage CloudBlockBlob videoBlob = container.GetBlockBlobReference(path); videoBlob.Properties.ContentType = "video/" + lastPart; await videoBlob.UploadFromStreamAsync(video); }

Am I doing something wrong?



Here's the code I use to capture video on the phone:

private async Task TakeVideoButton_Clicked(object sender, EventArgs e) { if (!CrossMedia.Current.IsCameraAvailable || !CrossMedia.Current.IsTakeVideoSupported) { await DisplayAlert("No Camera", ":( No camera avaialble.", "OK"); return; } mediaFile = await CrossMedia.Current.TakeVideoAsync(new Plugin.Media.Abstractions.StoreVideoOptions { Name = "video.mp4", Directory = "DefaultVideos", }); if (mediaFile == null) return; await DisplayAlert("Video Recorded", "Location: " + mediaFile.Path, "OK"); videoStream = mediaFile.GetStream(); file.Dispose(); }


I just tested this on my phone instead of my emulator and it worked perfectly there, so I'm going to assume it's purely a emulator related issue.
