Video Event Filter

A simple module to filter the events sent from the video element in a way that align with what is, most probably, expected from an analytics perspective.

Difference vs default events

The main differences that this filtering brings is

  • No pause is triggered while not playing. I.e. for seek, buffering or similar.
  • Instead of waiting event we have a proper buffering and buffered event flow.
  • timeupdate is only triggered during ongoing playback.
  • A play event after pause is now called resume to differ from the play event.

Implementation

  import { VideoEventFilter } from "@eyevinn/video-event-filter";

  const videoElement = document.querySelector("video");

  const videoEventFilter = new VideoEventFilter(videoElement);
  videoEventFilter.addEventListener("*", (event, data) => {
    console.log("EVENT:", event);
  });

Events

These are exposed as an Enum PlayerEvents.

  • loading
  • loaded, video have loaded, but not started
  • play, video have started to play
  • pause
  • resume, video have started to play after a pause
  • seeking
  • seeked, video is done seeking. Continue in the state that existed before.
  • buffering
  • buffered, video is done buffering. Continue in the state that existed before.
  • timeupdate
  • ended
  • error

States

You can also fetch the current state from the player, which will match the states exposed in PlayerState.

  import { VideoEventFilter } from "@eyevinn/video-event-filter";

  const videoElement = document.querySelector("video");
  const videoEventFilter = new VideoEventFilter(videoElement);

  const currentState = videoEventFilter.getState()
