    Default Any plan to add mediacache support for Windows Azure blob storage?

    Any plan to add mediacache support for Windows Azure blob storage? Just curious if anyone has made this request to extend mediacache, or has rolled their own solution. I've only taken a quick look, but it doesn't appear that the HTTP source will provide for the authentication headers needed.

    Hi,

    Do you have details on the authentication headers that are required for Azure? Could you use querystring? If so, you have to base64 encode the stream name with the querystring, then set base64DecodeStreamName Property set to true in the MediaCacheSource Properties container.

    <Property>
    	<Name>base64DecodeStreamName</Name>
    	<Value>true</Value>
    	<Type>Boolean</Type>
    </Property>
    Otherwise, Wowza strips the querystring.
