Packaging and Hosting App RRS feed

  • Question

  • Before I package my UWP app, I'm trying to set up hosting so I can put in the final links to video clips used by my app. 

    Do I need to store my videos in storage in a cloud? My videos are not embedded in my app; I'm just providing the links to videos using C# code. I'm not sure what type of hosting services I need to service users who download my app and use it.

    You could choose one in Microsoft Azure to store data depend on your specific requirement.

    You probably don't need to store the video in the cloud if you just provide the video link in your app.

  • Ok, but I have to store the videos somewhere. They're not embedded in the app and I'm not storing them locally. I'll have to put them with some hosting service and provide links in my code so the app users can play them.

  • As you have already coded a C# code to allow users to access links to your "How-to" videos.

    It would be suitable to use Microsoft Azure services to host the videos.

    Because you know C# was primarily made with Microsoft-specific services in mind.
