MediaStream.onremovetrack

The MediaStream.onremovetrack property is an EventHandler which specifies a function to be called when the removetrack event occurs on a MediaStream instance. This happens when a track of any kind is removed from the media stream. This event is fired when the browser removes a track from the stream (such as when a RTCPeerConnection is renegotiated or a stream being captured using HTMLMediaElement.captureStream() gets a new set of tracks because the media element being captured loaded a new source.

The removetrack event does not get fired when JavaScript code explicitly removes tracks from the stream (by calling removeTrack()).

Syntax

MediaStream.onremovetrack = eventHandler;

Value

This should be set to a function which you provide that accepts as input a MediaStreamTrackEvent object representing the removetrack event which has occurred. The MediaStreamTrack representing the track which was removed is specified in the event's track property.

Example

This example adds a listener which, when a track is removed from the stream, logs the track that was removed.

stream.onremovetrack = function(event) {
  let trackList = document.getElementById("tracks");
  let label = document.createElement("li");

  label.innerHTML = "Removed: " + event.track.kind + ": " + event.track.label;
  trackList.appendChild(label);
};
