For the videoIntent variable, put the uri variable as an extra using the key CodeChallenge.

Hello,

I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong on this question. Here is the code I'm using:

videoIntent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT, uri);

I get an error about permissions when doing this :s

It turns out Code Challenges are down right now :'(

I'm having the same problem. How do I find out if the code challenges are not working? Is there a place where this news is posted? I don't want to go crazy thinking I'm doing something wrong if it's not me for once. :)

If you get a permission denied error in the Preview then, the Code Challenges are down. Note that this is not the only indication that they're down. For example, the site could be down (Error 505, I assume)

Intent videoIntent = new Intent(MediaStore.ACTION_VIDEO_CAPTURE); videoIntent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT,uri);

Intent videoIntent = new Intent(MediaStore.ACTION_VIDEO_CAPTURE);
videoIntent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT,uri);

Hey George!

Are you having a problem with this code? It is correct and should be passing the challenge.

Great to hear that you're trying to help :)

Please can I kindly ask though that you don't just post the answer to Code Challenges without explanation - it doesn't assist with the learning of other students.

Typically, it helps just to post a hint to the student but if needed - provide the full answer and make sure to explain it.

Sorry if this sounds strict - I don't mean it to come out that way!
