HTMLMediaElement: emptied event

The emptied event is fired when the media has become empty; for example, this event is sent if the media has already been loaded (or partially loaded), and the load() method is called to reload it.

This event is not cancelable and does not bubble.

Syntax

Use the event name in methods like addEventListener(), or set an event handler property.

addEventListener('emptied', (event) => {});

onemptied = (event) => { };

Event type

A generic Event.

Examples

These examples add an event listener for the HTMLMediaElement's emptied event, then post a message when that event handler has reacted to the event firing.

Using addEventListener():

const video = document.querySelector('video');

video.addEventListener('emptied', (event) => {
  console.log('Uh oh. The media is empty. Did you call load()?');
});

Using the onemptied event handler property:

const video = document.querySelector('video');

video.onemptied = (event) => {
  console.log('Uh oh. The media is empty. Did you call load()?');
};
