setDataAndType() isn't always required. Skip that line here and now just start the Activity for intent.

PLEASE HELP

CodeChallenge.java
// This code is excerpted from an Activity
Uri videoUri = new Uri("http://files.parse.com/01234-abcd-video.mp4");
Intent intent=new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, videoUri);
intent.setDataAndType(intentUri, "video/*");
startActivity(intent);

Hi there,

You need to omit the second line - the challenge says setDataAndType() isn't always required. Skip that line here and now just start the Activity for intent so you just need to go straight to startActivity(intent);

The final code looks like:

Uri videoUri = new Uri("http://files.parse.com/01234-abcd-video.mp4");
Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, videoUri);
startActivity(intent);

Steve.
