The onplaying property of the GlobalEventHandlers mixin is the EventHandler for processing playing events.

The playing event is fired when playback is ready to start after having been paused or delayed due to lack of media data.


element.onplaying = handlerFunction;
var handlerFunction = element.onplaying;

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