Django website on Azure not serving static .mp4 files


Hi, my Django website works fine locally in Visual Studio but does not serve .mp4 files when publish to Azure. Do I need to include the web.config in my VS project and manually edit it? Please help. Thanks!

Are your files in one of the static folders Django will collect static files from? They should end up at http://.../static/file.mp4.

Without modifying web.config, you'll need to include the 'static' in the URL and the deployed directory, since it doesn't use a rewrite rule. PTVS 2.1 will eventually let you specify a rewrite rule, but for now you have to do it manually.
