HTMLVideoElement interface's read-only
videoWidth property indicates the intrinsic
width of the video, expressed in CSS pixels. In simple terms, this is the
width of the media in its natural size. See About intrinsic width and height for more details.
width = htmlVideoElement.videoWidth;
An integer value specifying the intrinsic width of the video in CSS pixels. If the
HTMLMediaElement.HAVE_NOTHING, then the value of this property is 0,
because neither video nor poster frame size information is yet available.
A user agent calculates the intrinsic width and height of the element's media by starting with the media's raw pixel width and height, then taking into account factors including:
- The media's aspect ratio.
- The media's clean aperture (the sub-rectangle centered within the media that matches the target aspect ratio).
- The target device's resolution.
- Any other factors required by the media format.
If the element is currently displaying the poster frame rather than rendered video, the
poster frame's intrinsic size is considered to be the size of the
If at any time the intrinsic size of the media changes and the element's
resize event will
be sent to the
<video> element. This can happen when the element
switches from displaying the poster frame to displaying video content, or when the
displayed video track changes.
