Capturing Photos and Videos challenge 2 of 3

I am stuck. I can't figure out what is wrong with my code.

This is the challenge:

Set the type for videoIntent to the MIME type "video/*" (it gets set as a String).

Here is my code:

// This code is excerpted from an Activity

Intent videoIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT); chooseVideoIntent.setType("video/*");

CodeChallenge.java
// This code is excerpted from an Activity
// This code is excerpted from an Activity
Intent videoIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT);
chooseVideoIntent.setType("video/*");

Looks like you are close. You need to change chooseVideoIntent to just videoIntent. Since you are setting the type for the videoIntent you created in the first line, you need to make sure the name you are calling setType on is the same as the variable you created. With the change it should look like:

Intent videoIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT);
videoIntent.setType("video/*");

Thank you sooooo much.

Can someone help me with the 3rd challenge . Am stuck
