Examples

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

Using addEventListener():

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

video.addEventListener('loadeddata', (event) => {
  console.log('Yay! The readyState just increased to  ' + 
      'HAVE_CURRENT_DATA or greater for the first time.');
});

Using the onloadeddata event handler property:

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

video.onloadeddata = (event) => {
  console.log('Yay! The readyState just increased to  ' + 
      'HAVE_CURRENT_DATA or greater for the first time.');
};
