This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes. Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

The ended read-only property of the MediaStream interface returns a Boolean value which is true if the stream has been completely read, or false if the end of the stream has not been reached. This value  once the ended event has been fired.

This property has been removed from the specification; you should instead rely on the ended event or check the value of MediaStreamTrack.readyState to see if its value is "ended" for the track or tracks you want to ensure have finished playing.


var hasEnded = MediaStream.ended;


A Boolean value that returns true if the end of the stream has been reached.


No longer part of any specification. This property was part of earlier drafts of the Media Capture and Streams specification.
