Media

Media

The Media object provides the ability to record and play back audio files on a device.

var media = new Media(src, mediaSuccess, [mediaError], [mediaStatus]);

Note: The current implementation does not adhere to a W3C specification for media capture, and is provided for convenience only. A future implementation will adhere to the latest W3C specification and may deprecate the current APIs.

Parameters

Constants

The following constants are reported as the only parameter to the mediaStatus callback function.

media.getCurrentPosition

Returns the current position within an audio file.

media.getCurrentPosition(mediaSuccess, [mediaError]);

Parameters

Description

Function media.getCurrentPosition is an asynchronous function that returns the current position of the underlying audio file of a Media object. Also updates the _position parameter within the Media object.

Supported Platforms

Quick Example

    // Audio player
    //
    var my_media = new Media(src, onSuccess, onError);

    // Update media position every second
    var mediaTimer = setInterval(function() {
        // get media position
        my_media.getCurrentPosition(
            // success callback
            function(position) {
                if (position > -1) {
                    console.log((position) + " sec");
                }
            },
            // error callback
            function(e) {
                console.log("Error getting pos=" + e);
            }
        );

media.release

Releases the underlying operating systems audio resources.

media.release();

Description

Function media.release is a synchronous function that releases the underlying operating systems audio resources. This function is particularly important for Android as there are a finite amount of OpenCore instances for media playback. Developers should call the 'release' function when they no longer need the Media resource.

Supported Platforms

Quick Example

    // Audio player
    //
    var my_media = new Media(src, onSuccess, onError);

    my_media.play();
    my_media.stop();
    my_media.release();
