.webp support

Post by Pascal P » 09 Jul 2019 16:39

Hello,
webp is new image format crated by google with a really better compression/quality ratio than jpeg format.
Today, modern web browsers support it and it's great.

Could you add webp preview in XYplorer please ?

Thanks !

Yes, I noted that too, and I'd love to support it. But a codec is needed. Windows cannot do it natively.

I already added it to Configuration | Preview | Previewed Formats | Categories | Image Files a while ago. But only you can install the codec. If you find it. I didn't.

I can see webp thumbnails and previews in XY after I installed WebP Codec 0.19.9

This did not work for me. I installed it but still no preview or thumbnails. (Win8.1)

The latest beta of Icaros (http://shark007.net/forum/Thread-New-Re ... 1-1-Beta-1) works for me (Win 8.1).

OK, installed it and it works, after adding webp by dragging it to the icaros config window. Thanks!

Thanks, it works fine too for me.
(I didn't have to use Icaros, only webp codec).
