MediaRecorder.onpause

The MediaRecorder.onpause event handler (part of the MediaRecorder API) handles the pause event, allowing you to run code in response to the media recording being paused.

The pause event is thrown as a result of the MediaRecorder.pause() method being invoked.

Syntax

MediaRecorder.onpause = function(event) { ... }
MediaRecorder.addEventListener('pause', function(event) { ... })

Example

...

  pause.onclick = function() {
    if(mediaRecorder.state === "recording") {
      mediaRecorder.pause();
      // recording paused
    } else if(mediaRecorder.state === "paused") {
      mediaRecorder.resume();
      // resume recording
    }
  }

  mediaRecorder.onpause = function() {
    // do something in response to
    // recording being paused
  }

  mediaRecorder.onresume = function() {
    // do something in response to
    // recording being resumed
  }

...
