MediaStreamEvent()

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

The MediaStreamEvent() constructor creates a new MediaStreamEvent.

Syntax

 var event = new MediaStreamEvent(type, mediaStreamEventInit);

Values

type
Is a DOMString containing the name of the event, like addstream or removestream.
mediaStreamEventInit
Is a MediaStreamEventInit dictionary, having the following fields:
  • "stream" of type MediaStream representing the stream being concerned by the event.
  • "bubbles", optional and defaulting to false, inherited from EventInit, and indicating if the event must bubble or not.
  • "cancelable", optional and defaulting to false, inherited from EventInit, and indicating if the event can be canceled or not.

Example

// s is a MediaStream 
var event = new MediaStreamEvent("addstrem", {"stream": s});
