  1. Using JavaScript libraries: Developers can use third-party JavaScript libraries like MIDI.js, MIDI.js-plus, or Tones.js to enable MIDI file playback on web browsers. These libraries work by converting the MIDI files into audio that can be played using the Web Audio API or the Audio tag.

  2. Native browser support: Some modern web browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Edge natively support MIDI file playback. Developers can use the Web MIDI API to access and play MIDI files on these browsers.

  3. Server-side rendering: Developers can convert MIDI files into audio files like MP3 or WAV on the server-side and then serve them to web browsers. This method can be resource-intensive and may require a dedicated server for the conversion process.

  4. Using MIDI plugins: Some web browsers support MIDI plugins that can play MIDI files. Developers can create or use existing plugins like QuickTime or Windows Media Player to enable MIDI file playback on web browsers.

  5. Cloud-based solutions: Developers can leverage cloud-based music services like SoundCloud or Spotify to enable MIDI file playback on web browsers. These services provide APIs that developers can use to play MIDI files on their web applications.
