Running the solution

In order to successfully run the solution you need to do 2 important things:
  • Choose multiple startup projects. Right click on the Solution file, select properties. From Common Properties select Startup Project. Select the "Multiple startup projects" radio. Choose "start" for "CloudFFMpeg" and "CloudVideoConverter" projects.
  • Your first run will fail. You have to download latest ffmpeg.exe (win32 or win64, either will work) build from here: and upload it to "sys-files" Blob Container. This container will be created after you run the solution for first time.

Useful resources

You may want to use the Azure Storage Explorer to monitor storage changes during the course of a video convertion. You may also use this tool to upload the ffmpeg executable.
