Examples

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

Using addEventListener():

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

video.addEventListener('ended', (event) => {
  console.log('Video stopped either because 1) it was over, ' +
      'or 2) no further data is available.');
});

Using the onended event handler property:

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

video.onended = (event) => {
  console.log('Video stopped either because 1) it was over, ' +
      'or 2) no further data is available.');
};
