No jQuery.js file??? Is this video outdated? Has anyone else had this problem?

I am looking in the appropriate folder and cant seem to find any jQuery.

Patrick Burke,

MediaElement stopped including jQuery in the download package. I updated the teacher's notes with some instructions on how to include it now. Thanks for the heads up, and let us know if that solves your issue or not.

I didn't see a jQuery file, either, but I just linked it using a CDN and my media player looks just like Joel's! Try this, before your other <script> tag:

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.2.1.min.js" integrity="sha256-hwg4gsxgFZhOsEEamdOYGBf13FyQuiTwlAQgxVSNgt4=" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

Or just write the hole jQuery file. Fixed :)
