HTML HTML Video and Audio Media Basics The Audio Element

I added the src attribute but I am still receiving an error saying that I need to add it. Am I missing something?

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

Hi Calvin Wang

You're on the right track. Instructions for challenges are often very specific and answers will not pass unless the instructions are followed specifically.

First, although this won't affect the passing, the instructions ask for a "self-closing" <audio> element, so for this challenge you don't need the `</audio> because there will be nothing in between the tags.

Second, part two asks you to use the src attribute to add the URL "on the <audio> tag". This means it should be within the tag. The question does not ask for a <source> tag, so that needs to be deleted and the src should be moved to inside the <audio> tag.
<audio src="url here">

Just fix up those and the rest will pass.

Nice work! :) :dizzy:

Thank you! Got it to work.
