Im having the same issue. Code is

<video width="320" height="240" controls>
   <source scr=""

Coming up with did you use the video url provided. I have copy and pasted it multiple times and i cant see anything else…

is this just a practice or in real if v search on internet we’ll get website plz answer quikly!!!

Yes, I used the URL provided.

This is a lesson. I do not want to report a glitch if I’m doing something wrong.

Does anybody know if my entry is right or wrong? I cant get the video to work.


I also had this problem when using an older version of Firefox then I used the lastest version of firefox and it worked with my code (the video can be played).

Then I copied / pasted your code below mine and I saw that they are identical. Now the funny part is that I have now two video windows on my webpage but the one corresponding to my code is working whereas the one copied/pasted from you does not work… (see the screen capture).

My code
  <video width="320" height="240" controls>
  <source src="" type="video/mp4">

Your code
  <video width="320" height="240" controls>
  <source scr="" type="video/mp4">

I do not understand… maybe you could try to update your plugins or try another browser.


That should be src.

What if I want to insert the link to a youtube video? How do I do that?

Have you tried this:

src="put the link to your Youtube video here"

here is an example of a youtube video from Codecademy
you can use embed code - it uses <iframe> tag

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

here is a screenshot (showing where to find the embed code)

Yes, I have. In the end I managed to insert my video using a different tag.

Yea, exactly! I used the above tags.

Thank you so much for your kind help!
