This town deserves a better class of criminal and I'm gonna give it to them. Tell your men they work for me now. This is my city. The first time I stole so that I wouldn't starve, yes. I lost many assumptions about the simple nature of right and wrong. And when I traveled I learned the fear before a crime and the thrill of success. But I never became one of them. I will go back to Gotham and I will fight
men like this but I will not become an executioner.

View Your Video:

After saving your file to your web server environment, you should be able to view your embedded video on the internet.
  • Navigate to the URL where your embedded code file exists
  • For example, if you named your file embed.html and uploaded to your domain called “myvideonetwork.com”, the URL would be http://www.myvideonetwork.com/embed.html
  • You should be able to view your video on the page, just as our code example looks in this section
  • If the video is not rendering properly: check to make sure you are on a live web server environment, make sure the embed code was copied properly, check for code errors on your page and use debugging techniques to pinpoint the exact issue
