Get the current Youtube Video time using JavaScript

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to get the current time of a Youtube Video using JavaScript.

Getting the current time

To get the current time of a Youtube video, first we need to access that element inside the JavaScript using the document.getElementById() method.

const ytvideo = document.getElementById("video-player");

Now, we need to call the getCurrentTime() method on it to get the current time.

ytvideo.getCurrentTime();

Full example:

const ytvideo = document.getElementById("video-player");
ytvideo.getCurrentTime();

The getCurrentTime() method returns the elapsed time in seconds since the video started playing.

Note: elapsed time means end time - start time
