How to integrate, YouTube API code into an azure function triggered by Azure Blob storage?

Leam 1 Reputation point

Basically, I am trying to take this sample Youtube API code [https://developers.google.com/youtube/v3/docs/videos/insert] which upload's videos to Youtube channel, and I am wrapping it inside an Azure function. The problem I am seeing is that, if I run the code WITHOUT putting it in azure function it works fine and my videos are getting uploaded. However, when I do wrap the code into an Azure Blob function, it does not upload videos to my Youtube channel. Am I missing any other logic in my function? I am suspecting that my function isn't reading the client_secrets.json?

Here is my Function1.cs code:


using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Mvc;
using Microsoft.Azure.WebJobs;
using Microsoft.Azure.WebJobs.Extensions.Http;
using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Http;
using Microsoft.Extensions.Logging;
using Newtonsoft.Json;
using Google.Apis.Auth.OAuth2;
using Google.Apis.Upload;
using Google.Apis.YouTube.v3.Data;
using System.Reflection;
using Google.Apis.YouTube.v3;
using Google.Apis.Services;
using System.Threading;

namespace YoutubeUploadFunction
    public static class Function1
        public static async Task Run([BlobTrigger("video/{name}", Connection = "AzureWebJobsStorage")]Stream myBlob, string name, Microsoft.Azure.WebJobs.ExecutionContext context, ILogger log)
            UserCredential credential;
            using (var stream = new FileStream(System.IO.Path.Combine(context.FunctionDirectory, "client_secrets.json"), FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read))
                credential = await GoogleWebAuthorizationBroker.AuthorizeAsync(
                new[] { YouTubeService.Scope.YoutubeUpload },

            var youtubeService = new YouTubeService(new BaseClientService.Initializer()
                HttpClientInitializer = credential,
                ApplicationName = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetName().Name

            var video = new Video();
            video.Snippet = new VideoSnippet();
            video.Snippet.Title = "Default Video Title";
            video.Snippet.Description = "Default Video Description";
            video.Snippet.Tags = new string[] { "tag1", "tag2" };
            video.Snippet.CategoryId = "22";
            video.Status = new VideoStatus();
            video.Status.PrivacyStatus = "unlisted";
            var VideoInsertRequest = youtubeService.Videos.Insert(video, "snippet,status", myBlob, "video/*");
            await VideoInsertRequest.UploadAsync();

Here is my client_secrets.json file:

"installed": {
    "client_id": "147300761218-dl0rhktkoj8arh0ebu5pu56es06hje5p.apps.googleusercontent.com",
    "project_id": "mytestproj",

    "token_uri": "https://oauth2.googleapis.com/token",
    "auth_provider_x509_cert_url": "https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v1/certs",
    "client_secret": "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx",
    "redirect_uris": [ "urn:ietf:wg:oauth:2.0:oob"]

Here is my Local.Setting.Json file:

    "IsEncrypted": false,
  "Values": {
    "AzureWebJobsStorage": "DefaultEndpointsProtocol=https;AccountName=uploadvideotoyoutube;AccountKey=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx==;EndpointSuffix=core.windows.net",
