How to add an src to http:/ /treehouse-code-samples.s3.amazonaws.com/html-video-and-audio/brhidge-audio.mp3

I checked, rechecked, I think I got it right, what is missing?

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <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">

    <h1>HTML Video and Audio</h1>
    <div class="wrapper">

      <audio><source src= "http://treehouse-code-samples.s3.amazonaws.com/html-video-and-audio/brhidge-audio.mp3" type= "audio/mp3">

Hi Kang,

It seems to me that you have unneeded space right after your src's.

Tried as you suggested, still didn't work

Hi Kang

In the first part of the challenge, they have you open a self-closing audio tag (<audio />). You'll want to keep working with that for the 2nd part of the challenge.

So...instead of breaking the audio element up into opening and closing tags, keep it as is.

Then, instead of inserting a <source> tag, simply add a src attribute to your self-closing audio tag, like so:

<audio src="URL Here" />

That should just about do it. Let me know if you have any questions!
