Variables

height:Int

Is a DOMString that reflects the height HTML attribute, which specifies the height of the display area, in CSS pixels.

poster:String

Is a DOMString that reflects the poster HTML attribute, which specifies an image to show while no video data is available.

read onlyvideoHeight:Int

Returns an unsigned long containing the intrinsic height of the resource in CSS pixels, taking into account the dimensions, aspect ratio, clean aperture, resolution, and so forth, as defined for the format used by the resource. If the element's ready state is HAVE_NOTHING, the value is 0.

read onlyvideoWidth:Int

Returns an unsigned long containing the intrinsic width of the resource in CSS pixels, taking into account the dimensions, aspect ratio, clean aperture, resolution, and so forth, as defined for the format used by the resource. If the element's ready state is HAVE_NOTHING, the value is 0.

width:Int

Is a DOMString that reflects the width HTML attribute, which specifies the width of the display area, in CSS pixels.

Methods

getVideoPlaybackQuality ():VideoPlaybackQuality

Returns a VideoPlaybackQuality objects that contains the current playback metrics.

Inherited Variables

Defined by MediaElement

read onlyaudioTracks:AudioTrackList

Is a AudioTrackList that lists the AudioTrack objects contained in the element.

autoplay:Bool

Is a Boolean that reflects the autoplay HTML attribute, indicating whether playback should automatically begin as soon as enough media is available to do so without interruption.

read onlybuffered:TimeRanges

Returns a TimeRanges object that indicates the ranges of the media source that the browser has buffered (if any) at the moment the buffered property is accessed.

controls:Bool

Is a DOMString indicating the CORS setting for this media element.

read onlycurrentSrc:String

Returns a DOMString with the absolute URL of the chosen media resource.

currentTime:Float

Is a double indicating the current playback time in seconds. Setting this value seeks the media to the new time.

defaultMuted:Bool

Is a Boolean that reflects the muted HTML attribute, which indicates whether the media element's audio output should be muted by default.

read onlyerror:MediaError

Returns a MediaError object for the most recent error, or null if there has not been an error.

loop:Bool

Is a Boolean that reflects the loop HTML attribute, which indicates whether the media element should start over when it reaches the end.

muted:Bool

read onlypaused:Bool

Returns a Boolean that indicates whether the media element is paused.

playbackRate:Float

Is a double that indicates the rate at which the media is being played back. 

read onlyplayed:TimeRanges

Returns a TimeRanges object that contains the ranges of the media source that the browser has played, if any.

preload:String

Is a DOMString that reflects the preload HTML attribute, indicating what data should be preloaded, if any. Possible values are: none, metadata, auto.

read onlyreadyState:Int

Returns a unsigned short (enumeration) indicating the readiness state of the media.

read onlyseekable:TimeRanges

Returns a TimeRanges object that contains the time ranges that the user is able to seek to, if any.

read onlyseeking:Bool

Returns a Boolean that indicates whether the media is in the process of seeking to a new position.

src:String

Is a DOMString that reflects the src HTML attribute, which contains the URL of a media resource to use.

srcObject:MediaStream

Is a MediaStream representing the media to play or that has played in the current HTMLMediaElement.

read onlytextTracks:TextTrackList

Returns the list of TextTrack objects contained in the element.

read onlyvideoTracks:VideoTrackList

Returns the list of VideoTrack objects contained in the element.

Note: Gecko supports only single track playback, and the parsing of tracks' metadata is only available for media with the Ogg container format.

volume:Float

read onlyoffsetTop:Int

read onlyoffsetWidth:Int

read onlyscrollHeight:Int

read onlytagName:String

Defined by Node

read onlybaseURI:String

Returns a DOMString representing the base URL. The concept of base URL changes from one language to another; in HTML, it corresponds to the protocol, the domain name and the directory structure, that is all until the last '/'.

read onlychildNodes:NodeList

Returns a live NodeList containing all the children of this node. NodeList being live means that if the children of the Node change, the NodeList object is automatically updated.

read onlyfirstChild:Node

Returns a Node representing the first direct child node of the node, or null if the node has no child.

read onlylastChild:Node

Returns a Node representing the last direct child node of the node, or null if the node has no child.

read onlylocalName:String

Returns a DOMString representing the local part of the qualified name of an element.

Note: In Firefox 3.5 and earlier, the property upper-cases the local name for HTML elements (but not XHTML elements). In later versions, this does not happen, so the property is in lower case for both HTML and XHTML. 1.9.2

read onlynamespaceURI:String

The namespace URI of this node, or null if it is no namespace.

Note: In Firefox 3.5 and earlier, HTML elements are in no namespace. In later versions, HTML elements are in the https://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml/ namespace in both HTML and XML trees. 1.9.2

read onlynextSibling:Node

Returns a Node representing the next node in the tree, or null if there isn't such node.

read onlynodeName:String

Returns a DOMString containing the name of the Node. The structure of the name will differ with the name type. E.g. An HTMLElement will contain the name of the corresponding tag, like 'audio' for an HTMLAudioElement, a Text node will have the '#text' string, or a Document node will have the '#document' string.

read onlynodeType:Int

Returns an unsigned short representing the type of the node. Possible values are:

Name Value

ELEMENT_NODE 1
ATTRIBUTE_NODE (deprecated) 2
TEXT_NODE 3
CDATA_SECTION_NODE (deprecated) 4
ENTITY_REFERENCE_NODE (deprecated) 5
ENTITY_NODE (deprecated) 6

COMMENT_NODE 8
DOCUMENT_NODE 9
DOCUMENT_TYPE_NODE 10
DOCUMENT_FRAGMENT_NODE 11
NOTATION_NODE (deprecated) 12

nodeValue:String

Returns / Sets the value of the current node

read onlyownerDocument:HTMLDocument

Returns the Document that this node belongs to. If no document is associated with it, returns null.

read onlyparentElement:Element

Returns an Element that is the parent of this node. If the node has no parent, or if that parent is not an Element, this property returns null.

read onlyparentNode:Node

Returns a Node that is the parent of this node. If there is no such node, like if this node is the top of the tree or if doesn't participate in a tree, this property returns null.

read onlyprefix:String

Is a DOMString representing the namespace prefix of the node, or null if no prefix is specified.

read onlypreviousSibling:Node

Returns a Node representing the previous node in the tree, or null if there isn't such node.

textContent:String

Returns / Sets the textual content of an element and all its descendants.

Inherited Methods

Defined by MediaElement

@:value({ language : "", label : "" })addTextTrack (kind:TextTrackKind, label:String = "", language:String = ""):TextTrack

Adds a text track (such as a track for subtitles) to a media element.

canPlayType (type:String):String

fastSeek (time:Float):Void

Throws:

null

DOMError

load ():Void

Resets the media element and restarts the media resource. Any pending events are discarded. How much media data is fetched is still affected by the preload attribute. This method can be useful for releasing resources after any src attribute and source element descendants have been removed. Otherwise, it is usually unnecessary to use this method, unless required to rescan source element children after dynamic changes.
