Description Jean-Yves Avenard [:jya] 2021-07-22 19:57:02 PDT
Consider the following case:


1- Open https://jyavenard.github.io/htmltests/tests/webaudio/decodeAudioData.html
2- Select half-a-second-48000.mp3 at the bottom of the list
3- Click on play

Safari will show 26496 frames 0.552s.

This file is exactly .5s long and made of 24000 frames.

It contains a XIPH header that provides the encoder delay and padding information.

Chrome and Firefox properly parse those MP3 which results in a continuous audio stream when looping. On Safari you can here the incorrectly generated blank frames.

The ability the produce frame-exact content is important for web audio applications. 

WebKit uses ExtAudioFileRead to demux and decode this file and it returns too many frames.
