    Custom MediaUrlProvider - Override DefaultMediaUrlProvider.GetMediaUrl

    Umbraco version: 8.1.5


    If I create a class inheriting the DefaultMediaUrlProvider in order to override GetMediaUrl, I can't get it to kick in.

    The code looks like this(have not implemented logic, as I would like to see it kick in first)


    public class ImgIxUrlProvider : DefaultMediaUrlProvider
        public override UrlInfo GetMediaUrl(UmbracoContext umbracoContext, IPublishedContent content, string propertyAlias, UrlMode mode,
            string culture, Uri current)
            return base.GetMediaUrl(umbracoContext, content, propertyAlias, mode, culture, current);


    [RuntimeLevel(MinLevel = RuntimeLevel.Run)]
    public class ImgIxUrlProviderComposer : IUserComposer
        public void Compose(Composition composition)
            // no luck
            composition.MediaUrlProviders().Replace<DefaultMediaUrlProvider, ImgIxUrlProvider>();
            // no luck

    If I set a breakpoints in my Composer.Compose method and one in ImgIxUrlProvider.GetMediaUrl, only the Composer.Compose gets hit. Setting one in GetMediaUrl does not get hit. So something is not wireing up as I would expect.

    My goal is to replace the default media URL with ImgIx(cdn) url.

    Can you see what I am missing?
