This morning we released Windows Azure Media Services .NET SDK as a full open source project(Apache 2 license) on Github. Meanwhile, there are some new features and capabilities along with this release. These new capabilities include:

  • • Storage 2.0 upgrade: we make our SDK compatible with storage SDK 2.0 now
  • Last version for storage 1.7: we released the last version of storage 1.7 with notification API but in the future, we will iterate on Storage 2.0 and above dependency
  • Notification APIs: adding encoding notification APIs enables you to monitor your encoding progress
