Player Event

Player Event

This event type is raised by the player as a notification when the player state changes and when users interact with the player. For example, when the video starts playing, is paused, etc. You can register for the various state changed events:

player.on(event, function(response) {
  // do something


player.on('durationchange', function(response) {
  window.console.log('duration change: ', response);
