The oncanplay property of the GlobalEventHandlers mixin is the event handler for processing canplay events.

The canplay event is fired when the user agent can play the media, but estimates that not enough data has been loaded to play the media up to its end without having to stop for further buffering of content.


element.oncanplay = handlerFunction;
var handlerFunction = element.oncanplay;

handlerFunction is either null or a JavaScript function specifying the handler for the event.
