Unable to access image uploaded to Sendbird from .net library

I’m developing an Android application using Xamarin.Android, hence I’m using SendBird’s .net library. I have implemented a function to send a ‘FileMessage’ (image, in particular) from local phone directory path. The issue I’m having is when I’m trying to display the ‘FileMessage’ in ‘OnMessageReceived’ event in the ‘ChannelHandler’. I was able to get the URL of the ‘FileMessage’ in the said event, but I can’t access the stream from the URL.

Here is the function that I use to access the URL:

private byte[] getBitmapFromURL(String src)
                URL url = new URL(src);
                HttpURLConnection connection = (HttpURLConnection)url.OpenConnection();
                connection.DoInput = true;
                Stream input = connection.InputStream;
                MemoryStream memoryStream = new MemoryStream();
                return memoryStream.ToArray();

            catch (Java.IO.IOException e)
                return null;

The function above throws an IOException when it reached connection.InputStream:

Here are some details from the FileMessage that I could see when I debug my program:

Please let me know if there is any specific way to access the image stream from images uploaded to Sendbird, or if there is anything else I could provide.

I have the same question and do not see this subject in the SB.NET documentation.

I want to be able to download the image from FileMessage.URL.

It seems like I am missing a SB.NET SDK method call that would be used specifically for this. If I try to just download the URL, then I get access denied.
