    Support BDSMLR

    Hi there!

    We will make it optional very soon. We're aiming to get that published this week. .webp saves huge amounts of bandwidth especially for those on mobile carriers / slow internet connections. 

     

    And in the future, please contact us directly via support request if it's not a feature request :). Thanks!

    They can turned off completely via settings already: https://bdsmlr.com/settings and disable webP's.

    Is your site converting GIFs to webp? Look, I don't care about file formats as long as I can download the file and watch it. Webp files don't play on my computer, and I know of no way to convert them to files I can play. I am in favor of what works, and webp files do not work.

    @John Blank, as a default yes. But like said, you can turn them off via your settings.

    Thanks, found it. I like the idea of webp, but unfortunately I can't do anything with the downloads.

    Packages for WebP support can be downloaded for all operating systems on Google's developer portal at https://developers.google.com/speed/webp/download

    Neither Faststone nor Photoshop can handle webp
