Examples

These examples add an event listener for the HTMLMediaElement's emptied event, then post a message when that event handler has reacted to the event firing.

Using addEventListener():

const video = document.querySelector('video');

video.addEventListener('emptied', (event) => {
  console.log('Uh oh. The media is empty. Did you call load()?');
});

Using the onemptied event handler property:

const video = document.querySelector('video');

video.onemptied = (event) => {
  console.log('Uh oh. The media is empty. Did you call load()?');
};
