HTML | DOM Audio seekable Property

  • Last Updated : 05 Aug, 2019

The DOM Audio seekable property is used for returning a TimeRanges object. The TimeRanges object is used for representing the ranges of the audio which are available for seeking by the user.
The time-range of audio which is available for seeking i.e. moving playback position is called a seekable range.
It is often possible to seek anywhere in the audio even before it has been buffered if its a non-streaming audio.
The Audio seekable property is a read-only property.

The time ranges object properties are:

  • length: It is used to get the number of seekable ranges in the audio.
  • start(index): It is used to get the position of a seekable range.
  • end(index): It is used to get the end position of a seekable range.
