CLIPBEGIN Attribute | clipBegin Property
This topic documents a feature of HTML+TIME 2.0, which is obsolete as of Windows Internet Explorer 9.
Sets or gets the beginning point of a sub-clip of a continuous media object.
HTML <ELEMENT CLIPBEGIN = sTime... > Scripting [ sTime = ] object.clipBegin
sTime String that specifies or receives the beginning point of a media object as an offset from the start time. The time must be specified as described in Time Formats.
The property is read/write. The property has no default value.
For the CLIPBEGIN attribute to work, the time2 behavior must be able to seek into the media. Some streaming formats do not support seeking. The canSeek property should indicate whether a media type supports seeking. Some formats, such as streaming media, do not report the correct information regarding their ability to seek.
Media must be seekable ( canSeek =
true), for the clipBegin property or the clipEnd property to work on that media.
