Examples

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

Using addEventListener():

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

video.addEventListener('seeked', (event) => {
  console.log('Video found the playback position it was looking for.');
});

Using the onseeked event handler property:

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

video.onseeked = (event) => {
  console.log('Video found the playback position it was looking for.');
};
