    Create Media on Azure Blob Storage Using C#

    Hi Guys,

    I am using UmbracoFileSystemProviders.Azure to setup Umbraco media files to use an Azure storage account.

    I have requirement to create media(Image) in azure blob storage using c# code. Here is the code I used before with local file system.

    public int SaveImage(string url, int mediaNodeId)
                var mediaService = Services.MediaService;
                string originalFileName = Path.GetFileName(url);
                string filenameToSave = Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(originalFileName) + Guid.NewGuid() + Path.GetExtension(originalFileName);
                string imageUrl = url; // Get file URL
                string saveLocation = Server.MapPath("~/Imports/" + filenameToSave); // The file will downloaded into a folder in root
                byte[] imageBytes;
                HttpWebRequest imageRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(imageUrl);
                WebResponse imageResponse = imageRequest.GetResponse();
                Stream responseStream = imageResponse.GetResponseStream();
                using (BinaryReader br = new BinaryReader(responseStream))
                    imageBytes = br.ReadBytes(500000000);
                FileStream fs = new FileStream(saveLocation, FileMode.Create);//save the image to the root folder
                BinaryWriter bw = new BinaryWriter(fs);
                var mediaImage = mediaService.CreateMedia(originalFileName, mediaNodeId, "Image");
                mediaImage.SetValue("umbracoFile", originalFileName, fs);//setting filestream to UmbracoFile
                mediaService.Save(mediaImage);//Save media
                return mediaImage.Id;
            catch (Exception ex)
            return 0;

    The above code is not working when I am trying to create image to Azure blob storage. Please help!
