HTML HTML Video and Audio Media Basics The Audio Element

What is wrong with the SRC attribute?

I am getting the bummer message below: Bummer! Be sure to add an src attribute to your <audio> element.

But the src is just fine.

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <title>HTML Video and Audio</title>

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="normalize.css">
    <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Nunito:400,300' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="main.css">
  </head>
  <body>

    <h1>HTML Video and Audio</h1>

    <div class="wrapper">

      <!-- Add your code below this line -->
      <audio>
        <source src="http://treehouse-code-samples.s3.amazonaws.com/html-video-and-audio/bridge-audio.mp3">
      </audio>

    </div>

  </body>
</html>

Hi there! The problem here is simply a misinterpretation of the instructions. They asked you to add the src attritibute to the <audio> tag. But you've created a separate <source> tag and added the src attribute there.

This is what they're looking for:

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

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

You want to put the src attribute inside the <audio> tag -

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