buf.readInt16BE is not a function

See original GitHub issue

When trying to use parseFile on mp3 files, thanks to a Node script, I have the following error on some files:

Node v16.5.0 MacOS BigSur

Bug mp3 file example: Example

Not sure if it can help but I did not have the issue with music-metadata@7.8.5 but with music-metadata@7.8.8. And now, returning on music-metadata@7.8.5 is not working anymore.

Is your issue solved @qboisson by upgrading to music-metadata v7.9.0?

Ah, okay good, just did another release to freeze the version of the problematic dependencies.
