After you first set up Azure Storage Provider using Setup Wizard, you can re-configure certain parameters such as your storage account or the container where you save content using VIDIZMO portal.

In order to learn how to automate the setup of your content provider and encoding service provider via VIDIZMO portal, see: Understanding Setup Wizard.

Before you start

  • Administrators and Managers are allowed to view and edit Azure Storage Provider.
  • Here, you need to manually set up your Azure storage account so that you are able to update related configuration details in VIDIZMO portal. To learn more about it, see: Create a storage account and Create an Azure CDN profile and endpoint.
  • Any mistakes while configuring storage provider can break the uploading/encoding process.

1. Create your storage account in Azure. Copy Access Key and the default endpoint for your blob storage for later use in VIDIZMO portal.
