passing url with Shared Access Signature not working

Oct 26, 2010 at 10:39 PM

Silverlight VideoPlayer (codeplex) within Azure web role ( is passed a url (.wma file) with a Shared Access Signature appended - this fails with a Silverlight error.  Same url+sas plays fine from IE (which fires up Windows Media Player)

Question is - is this possible?  A silverlight problem?  Tried multiple Silverlight video players available on codeplex - all seem to fail...

If I remove the SAS from the url and change the storage container ACL to public then everything works fine, but this is not secure and I need to keep the container private and leverage SAS for brief temporary access.

I would love to use this solution for my playing my private azure storage blobs (.wma)

Any thoughts?  Much appreciated!
