Encode/decode images in WebP format in AmigaOS

Google launched this image format named WebP. Now AmigaOS users can encode or even decode WebP format images thanks to the uploader to Aminet.

What does the WebP format do in AmigaOS

To open various things in AmigaOS. The operating system needs to have tools to do so. You need WebP codec: library to encode and decode images in WebP format. This package on Aminet contains the library that can be used in other programs to add WebP support, such as web browsers, e-mail clients or other network tools using the WebP format.

The person behind this WebP format launched the command line tools ‘cwebp’ and ‘dwebp’ also.

See https://developers.google.com/speed/webp

Latest sources are available from http://www.webmproject.org/code/

It is released under the same license as the WebM project.
See http://www.webmproject.org/license/software/ or the
file “COPYING” file for details. An additional intellectual
property rights grant can be found in the file PATENTS.

So what is WebP image format?

WebP is an image format like iff, png or even jpg. This image format is employing both lossy and lossless compression. It is currently developed by Google, based on technology acquired with the purchase of On2 Technologies. As a derivative of the VP8 video format, it is a sister project to the WebM multimedia container format.

So now AmigaOS also knows how to read WebP images. But thats not all. Also MorphOS and AmigaOS 4.x will benefit from this release too. They will also have WebP images support. In a separate release on Aminet he also released a AROS version too. This is what I must applaud for. Supporting more… !
