Lesson 8: Video


<Below this line, add a link to the EXACT exercise that you are stuck at.>

<Below this line, in what way does your code behave incorrectly? Include ALL error messages.>
I’m not getting any error messages, at first it read: “must be paired with :>” but I added “>” The second exercise is not being checked off because the video won’t play.

same problem, can’t get passed the video portion of lesson 8.


Thanks!It work. I dont know why my code doesnt work…

…Maybe because did not have a container with a nav and main section ??

It would be great if we all knew how to use classes before we learn how to embed a video in html.

Then do the HTML & CSS course…
