This C# project implements randomly accessible stream on HTTP 1.1 transport. Typically, HttpClient provides almost all HTTP features but it just provides us with a way to download a file completely. The implementation take advantage of HTTP 1.1 range access or on fallback case, it uses HTTP/1.0 sequential download anyway.

Source Code

The source code is available at GitHub.

Simple Usage

using Espresso3389.HttpStream;

// cache stream
var fs = File.Create("cache.jpg");

// The third parameter, true indicates that the httpStream will close the cache stream.
var uri = new Uri(@"");
var cacheSize = 1024 * 64;
var httpStream = new HttpStream.HttpStream(uri, fs, true, cacheSize, null);

// RangeDownloaded is called on every incremental download
httpStream.RangeDownloaded += (sender, e) =>
  Console.WriteLine("Progress: {0}%", (int)(100 * httpStream.CachedRatio));

// The following code actually invokes download whole the file
// You can use BufferedStream to improve I/O performance.
var bmp = await BitmapFactory.DecodeStreamAsync(new BufferedStream(httpStream, cacheSize));
