Flutter – 'Window_sendPlatformMessage' (4 arguments) cannot be found

Issue

I am developing an app with Flutter that takes an image and allows the user to save it in the gallery.

I am using image_picker_saver plugin to save it.

In the beginning I was calling the method to save the image in the main thread but I realized that was really slow and now I am trying to put it in a new isolated thread, but I am getting the same error all the time, so, my question is: How can I call the method to save the image in a new isolated thread?

My code looks like this:

Main.dart


    class _AkkaMark extends State<CameraUpload>{
    .
    .
    .
        void _clickSaveImage() {
          compute(saveImage, _imageFile).then((Future<String> futurePath) {
              futurePath.then((String path){
                _imageFile = new File(path);
              });
          });
        }
    .
    .
    .
    }

toCompute.dart

    Future<String> saveImage(File image) async {

      return await ImagePickerSaver.saveFile(fileData: image.readAsBytesSync());

    }

I tried to change the code trying to locate the error but is always the same:

Someone has any clue? Thanks in advance

Edit

I put the question on GitHub and basically plugins only can be used in the main UI thread.

‘Window_sendPlatformMessage’ (4 arguments) cannot be found
