HTML HTML Video and Audio Media Basics The Audio Element

I wrote the correct line of code for the example, but it's still marking it as a "bummer.

HI, I wrote the correct line of code on the audio quiz, but it's still marking it as a "bummer" and not allowing me to move on.

<h2>Audio Example</h2> <audio controls> <source src="http://treehouse-code-samples.s3.amazonaws.com/html-video-and-audio/bridge-audio.mp3" type="audio/mp3"> </audio>

Thanks, KL

It seems you have an extra closing audio tag. Try removing that to see if it works now. Hope this helps!

Hi Tiwond, It didn't work and it's still not allowing me to move on. Thanks for trying! Best, KL

I see the other problem. Make sure you are using the audio tag.

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

I think you forgot the control tag on the last task.

Awesome! That worked! Thank you, Tiwong!

I believe the source element is self-closing ex: <source src="link" type="audio/mp3"> dont forget the angle bracket at the end
