What are Player Events?

The Player exposes a variety of Events in it's life-cycle, from loading until finishing it's playback. These events can be mapped to custom functions that will be triggered when the player fires the selected event.

Note: To do this, you will have to get hold of the player object using some JavaScript code. For further details, please see the following articles:
