Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

Syntax

var mySourceBuffer = SourceBufferList[index];

Parameters

index
The index position of the SourceBuffer object you want to return.

Returns

A SourceBuffer object.

Errors

No specific errors are returned, but if the supplied index is great than or equal to SourceBufferList.length, the operation will return undefined.

Example

TBD.
