Bummer! Be sure to add an src attribute to your <audio> element.

this looks correct to me and matches what i did in the workspace, what am I missing?

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <title>HTML Video and Audio</title>

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="normalize.css">
    <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Nunito:400,300' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="main.css">
  </head>
  <body>

    <h1>HTML Video and Audio</h1>

    <div class="wrapper">

      <!-- Add your code below this line -->
      <audio>
        <source src="http://treehouse-code-samples.s3.amazonaws.com/html-video-and-audio/bridge-audio.mp3">
      </audio>


    </div>

  </body>
</html>

Hey Christian!

Be sure to actually add the 'src' attribute inside the 'audio' element just like below!

<audio src=""></audio>

Let me know if this works for you.

As far as I'm aware the "source" element doesn't exist or can't be used in this context. The way that I suggested is the way in which I would do it!
