What's the play event on a video html5 element?

I have a video html5 tag embedded on page. I need to trigger an action when the user clicks the "Play Button". But I can't find how to bind that to my action. Is there an event for what I need? I'm using jQuery...

Thanks!

Answer

Does this W3C demo page help? http://www.w3.org/2010/05/video/mediaevents.html It appears the play event is simply 'play'.

For example:

$('video').bind('play', function (e) {
    // do something
});

or

$('video').on('play', function (e) {
    // do something
});
