Orbit with flex video

Hey Team! Breanna emailed us a question about Orbit and flex video. If anyone have experience with this, your help will be greatly appreciated!

--

I recently downloaded Foundation 5 and have issues adding any type of media. When coping the flex video code from the add-ons on the foundation website the video never works and I am trying to add an Orbit slide but only get bullet points instead of the actual slider. I am very new to web designing so i'm hoping this is just a simple mistake that I am making. the portion of code I'm working with looks like this:

<!-- First Band (Slider) -->

  <ul class="example-orbit" data-orbit="">
    <li>
      <img alt="slide 1" src="../assets/img/examples/satelite-orbit.jpg">

      <div class="orbit-caption">
        Caption One.
      </div>
    </li>

    <li>
      <img alt="slide 2" src="../assets/img/examples/andromeda-orbit.jpg">

      <div class="orbit-caption">
        Caption Two.
      </div>
    </li>

    <li>
      <img alt="slide 3" src="../assets/img/examples/launch-orbit.jpg">

      <div class="orbit-caption">
        Caption Three.
      </div>
    </li>
  </ul>
  
    <!-- Three-up Content Blocks -->

  <div class="row">
    <div class="large-4 columns">
      <img src="http://placehold.it/400x300&amp;text=[img]">

      <h4>This is a content section.</h4>

      <p>Bacon ipsum dolor sit amet nulla ham qui sint exercitation eiusmod
      commodo, chuck duis velit. Aute in reprehenderit, dolore aliqua non est
      magna in labore pig pork biltong. Eiusmod swine spare ribs reprehenderit
      culpa. Boudin aliqua adipisicing rump corned beef.</p>
    </div>
  </div>

Welcome to Foundation!

there is a slight error with the first part of your code

data-orbit=""> should be data-orbit>

if this does not still work please check the js files are linked correctly to enable orbit to work as I think this is more likely the issue.

Hope this helps
