HTML | DOM Track readyState property

  • Last Updated : 07 Nov, 2019

The DOM track readyState property is used to return the value of the current ready state of the track. It is a read-only property, and ready state denotes that the track is ready to play or not.



Return Values: It returns a number which represent whether the track is ready to play or not.

  • 0 = NONE => It means the text track has not been obtained
  • 1 = LOADING => It means there are no errors in text track loading and more cues can still be added to the track through the parser.
  • 2 = LOADED => It means the text track has been loaded with no errors.
  • 3 = ERROR => It means the text track was enabled, but something failed when the user tries to obtain it.
