5 posts were split to a new topic: Do you have to use a seperate tag for Audio Source? Can you use it like an img tag?

A post was split to a new topic: Embedding Video Links in a list

I’m noticing that the lesson uses following: . From reviewing the MDN and other sources, it appears that the “audio/mp3” is a “Mime Type”. When I go to Mime Type documentation though, the MDN and other sources, appear to tell me that I should use “audio/mpeg” (likely because MP3 is just a MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3). However, is there a risk that some browsers won’t support “audio/mp3” or that in the future this could get deprecated?

Quick question. There are two ways to embed audio tags into the HTML code file.

  1. <//audio
    controls> <source src=" "//>

  2. <//audio
    source src=" ">

The difference is subtle but the “>” after controls and source is preferred (in 2nd example?) or the source can be coded as a separate entity as it is in example one?

Thank You :slight_smile:
