Hey there!

For the second parameter on this method call:

startActivityForResult(videoIntent, TAKE_VIDEO_REQUEST);

You want to put 0 as the request code.

Hope it helps and, if you have any more problems, give me a shout :)

Hi! Sorry I am still not getting you. How do I put 0 as the request code?

No problem!

You've actually done in on this line which you do not need (You're not asked in the Code Challenge to write this line so, go ahead and delete it):

videoIntent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_VIDEO_QUALITY, 0);

It tells us on the 3rd part of the challenge that in startActivityForResult()'s second parameter, we should pass in the 0 as the result code.

So, just to clarify what you need to do:

1) Delete the line where you are setting the EXTRA_VIDEO_QUALITY, you're not asked to do this in the Code Challenge. 2) On startActivityForResult()'s second parameter, pass in 0 as the request code.

Hope it helps and, if there's anything else you need, give me a shout :)
