close()

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The MediaKeySession.close() method notifies that the current media session is no longer needed, and that the content decryption module should release any resources associated with this object and close it. Then, it returns a Promise.

Syntax

mediaKeySession.close().then(function() { ... });

Return value

A Promise.
