Linked video won't play
I am extremely new to coding. I'm teaching myself HTML. I just started my first project on here to practice, and I am trying to add a YouTube video. It appears on the page, but it won't play. I used the video tag, added the URL to the src attribute, and have a closing tag. What am I doing wrong? Halp!
Two things - Either copy embedded code from a video URL by right clicking on the video, or write this code - <source src="", in the file, put your video URL. Or you can hit the dots at the top, and get the video you want from your files, and link it in the src, where I showed the empty string.
video tags have a (imo) misleading syntax, read more about it here
<video controls width="250"> <source src="..." type="..."> ... <!-- Fallback text --> </video>
But this is a youtube video, and they have even more strange syntax.
So on that specific youtube video:
And click copy on that bottom embed, so now your HTML code is:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/lk6iJNSv-vY" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>
