Uncaught ReferenceError: `Buffer` is not defined

See original GitHub issue

I am receiving this error: Capture

I am importing the package like this: import { parseBlob } from "music-metadata-browser"

I am calling the function like this: const metadata = await parseBlob(audio)

I have already checked that I am passing a object of type File using instanceof.

I am using the latest version of music-metadata and Chrome.

I was wondering whether this library could instead operate on Uint8Arrays instead of buffers?

That’s a good question, I have been been working on that behind the screens. One of the issues is that the TextEncoder is limited to utf-8 encoding and decoding in the Node.js implementation.

Thank you, I managed to find a solution. For anyone else looking, It’s an issue with webpack 5.
