Read more image formats for local artwork (webp)

Hi, I am a new Emby user and I can say I am impressed with it.

I have been using Kodi for a long time and I rely to nfo files (it's my preferred choice for dealing with my media).

Since Emby can't parse artwork from NFO files, I decided to give a try to local artwork.

My problem now, my artwork is not in jpg and png files, I prefer it to be in webp format (smaller filesizes, massive savings especially in png files since png is lossless and huge in filesize).

If I rename the webp artwork to png (for example poster.webp to poster.png) Emby reads and displays the webp artwork fine.

So what I am requesting.. is it possible for Emby like Kodi does to read more image formats for local artwork and not only jpg and png?

It's only an import issue, Emby imports and displays the webp artwork fine if I change the extension to png.

Thank you in advance for any reply to my request Emby devs.

For some reason I thought this had been done in the new BETA..

I just tested it in 4.6.0.46 beta. It doesn't.

Being that most things are incorporating Google's WEBM and WEBP whatever.. This probably would be a good idea.. and should be simple enough.

You might consider going ahead and adding support for AVIF at the same time, since that apparently is the successor to webp. 

Hi, yes avif is something we will be looking at adding. Thanks.

Any news on this? I was surprised to find that my webp artwork isn't recognized.

Bump. 

Please add this feature. 

I use Youtube-dl material to download youtube videos sometimes. It generates a thumbnail (webp) along with an nfo file. Emby does not read the thumbnail when its using the webp file extension, but simply renaming it to jpg makes Emby read it.

Also, with nfo files, there's no formatting when displayed in Emby. I hope that could be fixed some day too.

How it shows up in emby:

There are dozens of topics on this but there is NO method that will work across all clients.  You can use custom css for the web client (not the online client).
