HTMLMediaElement: stalled event

The stalled event is fired when the user agent is trying to fetch media data, but data is unexpectedly not forthcoming.

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('stalled', (event) => {});

onstalled = (event) => { };

Event type

A generic Event.

Examples

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

Using addEventListener():

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

video.addEventListener('stalled', (event) => {
  console.log('Failed to fetch data, but trying.');
});

Using the onstalled event handler property:

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

video.onstalled = (event) => {
  console.log('Failed to fetch data, but trying.');
};
