            Bug ID: 228971
           Summary: decodeAudioData should support .mov files recorded by
           Product: WebKit
           Version: Safari 14
          Hardware: iPhone / iPad
                OS: iOS 14
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Web Audio

In Safari for iOS, the decodeAudioData method of the WebAudio api is unable to extract an audio buffer from .mov videos recorded with iPhone, despite the fact that the <video ...> element can play these videos and their audio correctly.

Running the following example from Safari in an iPhone X, the 'it failed... err:' alert is always shown when attempting to load a .mov file recorded with the phone:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
        <meta charset="UTF-8">
        <title>decodeAudioData test</title>]
<input type="file" accept="video/*" id="video-test-input">
        const fileSelector = document.getElementById('video-test-input')
        fileSelector.addEventListener('change', e => {
                const [file] = e.target.files

                const reader = new FileReader()

                reader.addEventListener('load', () => {
                        new AudioContext({sampleRate: 44100})
                                        .decodeAudioData(reader.result, function(buffer) {
                                                alert('it worked! duration: ' + buffer.duration)
                                        }, function (err) {
                                                alert('it failed... err: ' + err)

                reader.addEventListener('error', () => alert('file read failed... err: ' + reader.error))


mp4 videos work fine with this example, but it limits the utility of this feature a lot when the videos natively recorded by the device can't be used.
