      :controls="true"
      :loop="true"
      :ref="'fish'"
      :style="{width: '500px'}"
      @pause="handle()"
    >
    </Media>
  </div>
</template>

<script>
import Media from '@dongido/vue-viaudio'

export default {
  name: 'app',
  components: {
    Media
  },
  methods: {
    handle() {
      console.log('Video paused!, playing in 2 sec...')

      setTimeout( () => {
        this.$refs.fish.play() 
      }, 2000)
    }
  }
}
</script>

<style>
#app {
  width: 100%;
  text-align: center;
  margin-top: 40vh;
}
</style>

Media sources

This package can accept its source of media from either the :src or :srcObject property.

The src property can be either a string or an array.

The :srcObject is particularly useful when you need to render a stream source like from WebRTC.

Properties - supports all Video and Audio Element properties.

Props Required Description
src [Array or String ] True (if srcObject is not provided) The source of the media
srcObject [Object] True (if src is not provided) The source of the media
kind [String] True It's either audio or video.
isMuted [String] False Determines if a video will be muted or not. It's either true or false.

It accepts all video and audio attributes. You just need to pass the one you need. You can also bind them if you need some reactivity.

Video Events

You can listen to video element events when they happen. These events are available when you pass the prop kind as video.

Events Description

canplaythrough The browser estimates it can play the media up to its end without stopping for content buffering.

You can read more about these events here.

Example usage

<script>
import Media from '@dongido/vue-viaudio'

export default {
  name: 'app',
  components: {
    Media
  },
  methods: {
    handlePauseEvent() {
      console.log('The video is now paused.')
    }
  }
}
</script>

<template>
  <div id="app">
    <Media 
      :kind="'video'"
      :controls="true"
      :src="'https://www.w3schools.com/html/mov_bbb.mp4'"
      @pause="handlePauseEvent()" // The event
    >
    </Media>
  </div>
</template>
