Unable To Set Blob Service Properties

I have an issue with azure storage blob is not returning 206 Partial content for video files.

Problem: videos are fully downloaded(20-40s for 300mb videos) and the seek bar is not working. I am using Laravel and this problem occurs only when I try to retrieve the .mp4 files from Azure Blob Storage. It was working fine when I was storing the media files on the public disk.

A Microsoft employee states that changing the x-ms-version to 2011-01-18 or later will fix my issue. LINK to the discussion:

Microsoft has a post related to setting the blob service properties: HERE

Note their sample for achieving that: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/storageservices/set-blob-service-properties#sample-request-and-response

I am trying to send the request via Postman like this:

PUT https://{account-name}.blob.core.windows.net/?restype=service&comp=properties

Included Headers and Response in Postman:


I searched for the error and found this question on SO: The MAC signature found in the HTTP request '...' is not the same as any computed signature

It has an accepted answer but I don't seem to get it. Is there something wrong with my Request/ Authorization header? Or I need to take a different approach?

Thanks in advance!

    It seems like you might not be generating the signature portion of the key correctly. For more information you can refer to the documentation here. There is also a tutorial that you might find helpful. There is also a working postman example on Stack Overflow which will probably be helpful to you.

    Hope this helps. Please let us know if you are still having issues or have further questions.
