Lighthouse from within inspecting the site (Chrome & Edge) is recommending using that format and states I can save a second per page load.

I now have the plugin for Pshop.

Any plans to implement?

I'm not an expert and don't know if it is planned, but isn't WebP relatively new? I think only very new browsers support that, right?

Okay, coming up on two years now, and I think .webp is getting pretty established - maybe could be added as a supported type to RocketCake? I just converted a .png to .webp and it's 90% smaller, at a loss of maybe 10% in quality...

Hey, so now this is getting really important to my workflow. A client has a large animated GIF that they would like converted to WEBM. No worries there, but RocketCake isn't letting me swap out the GIF in any manner that I can discern easily.

How hard would it be to get WEBM and WEBP formats supported? PageSpeed ranks keep hammering my sites and telling me that I need to convert a number of my assets to these formats.

Thanks for your thoughts!

Yes, it's planned for the next update (but I cannot promise this).

As workaround for now, you can just use gifs/pngs in rocketcake and replace the uploaded files with webm/webp but with the old extensions - this will still work in all browsers which support webm/webp.

Rats, this didn't work, at least in edge. Renamed animatedlogo.gif to animatedlogo.gif.old (don't burn bridges!)
Then renamed animatedlogo.webm to animatedlogo.gif.
Then uploaded the new files to the server.
Refreshed in Edge, and it just shows the empty picture box. Have to cross my fingers that you get it figured out in RocketCake I guess?

It is not possible to use mp4 instead webm?
Mp4 is better, both formats provide relatively similar compression, but in quality mp4 is better.

And also webm is less compatible. Mainly supported by Google. Mp4 is widely accepted by media players, editing software, sharing platforms, etc.

I could be wrong, but I think that Chromium based browsers do not accept MP4 autoplay, so that would be a non-starter coming from an animated GIF logo for the company.
