Is this course outdated?

Here is a snapshot: https://w.trhou.se/tpd9gx9i0v

I can't get the controls to show on my page, I've downloaded mejs via ZIP, unpacked it, uploaded it to the workspace to the correct locations. Linked the page to the right paths. Added jQuery, firstly via CDN which didn't work, then via download which did nothing too.

Did I overlook something? Or is this course just outdated and you need more up to date files?

The course is not outdated you just didn't specify controls in your audio and video tags

<video controls></video> <audio controls></audio>

@Joshua Esquer-Davis These are removed since MEJS supplies those features for you, as explained in the video..

Wow thanks, the JS folder was already capitalized in the workspace and I got so used to having them lowercase. I knew I completely overlook something so trivial, thanks again for pointing it out haha.
