The MediaError.message DOMString field provides, if available, any additional vendor-specific error message detail to assist web authors debugging media player errors. The format and content of the string is left to vendors, though it's commonly in the form of a vendor-specific error code followed optionally by a ":" and further detail about the error. It is populated at the time of MediaError creation.
