I need to use Amazon Elastic Transcoder for an mvc project. I wanted to use it via http request as described by documentation. While creating header of request I need to create Authorization parameter as described which I think I did. But the response returns this error;
The request signature we calculated does not match the signature you provided. Check your AWS Secret Access Key and signing method. Consult the service documentation for details.

Host parameter of request is =

URl for post is =

Authorization parameter is something like = AWS4-HMAC-SHA256 Credential=accesskey/formatteddate/us-east-1/elastictranscoder/aws4_request,SignedHeaders=host;x-amz-date;x-amz-target,Signature=xxxxx

Anyone have an idea of the reason for this error?

I want to transcode any video format to mp4 format via Amazon Elastic Transcoder for an MVC project, how your link will help me to do that? @g.pickardou

It won't. If you had bothered to visit the link, you would have found a place to ask the Amazon API developers your question. They know about their code and they are the ones to ask.

No, it didn't bother me. I just wanted to learn where the solution is.
Since it is also an mvc project I thought maybe someone also encountered same problem. Thanks for guiding me , I believe it will be more helpful to me.

I have updated AWSSDK from nuget for mvc project and there was an api for elastic transcoder; here is the simple way to do:

var response = etsClient.CreateJob(new CreateJobRequest()
               PipelineId = "pipelineid", //pipeline.Id,
               Input = new JobInput()
                   AspectRatio = "auto",
                   Container = "auto",
                   FrameRate = "auto",
                   Interlaced = "auto",
                   Resolution = "auto",
                   Key = "folder1/video.flv"
               Output = new CreateJobOutput()
                   ThumbnailPattern = "",
                   Rotate = "0",
                   PresetId = "1351620000001-000040",
                   Key = "output.mp4"
