Jamison what do you mean by "not working"? I copied and pasted the code you have given and it works correctly. The video and audio elements are displayed and the controls are visible.

unable to update the skins of the player as shown in the lesson

I am also having trouble with this. i think it may have to do with the browser correctly loading the CSS because I have had a few similar issues with other things in workspaces as well as in the previous video.
