The read-only property MediaStreamTrack.readyState returns an enumerated value giving the status of the track.


 var state = track.readyState;


It takes one of the following values:

  • "live" which indicates that an input is connected and does its best-effort in providing real-time data. In that case, the output of data can be switched on or off using the MediaStreamTrack.enabled attribute.
  • "ended" which indicates that the input is not giving any more data and will never provide new data.
