    Thanks very nice tut. I do not know why you omitted "self.url" in the init function
    init(title: String, description: String, thumbnailURL: NSURL, createdAt: String, auther: String )
    self.title = title
    self.description = description
    self.thumbnailURL = thumbnailURL
    self.createdAt = createdAt
    self.auther = auther

    Hi Duc, great tutorial. You explained JSON format very well.

    However the one thing i would like to bring to your notice is that the music's volume at the beginning & at the end of the video is very high. You should have kept it low so that viewer's can concentrate on what you are speaking.

    Once again thanks for making this great video tutorial..
