HTMLMediaElement: volumechange event

The volumechange event is fired when the volume has changed.

This event is not cancelable and does not bubble.


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

addEventListener("volumechange", (event) => {});

onvolumechange = (event) => {};

Event type

A generic Event.


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

Using addEventListener():

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

video.addEventListener("volumechange", (event) => {
  console.log("The volume changed.");

Using the onvolumechange event handler property:

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

video.onvolumechange = (event) => {
  console.log("The volume changed.");
