WEBP support in openCV distributed with openVINO

Hi,

 

OpenCV libraries distributed with openVINO do not support WEBP image format. Is there a good reson for this or it is an oversight? Are there any plans to enable this format in future?


Thanks

Alexey

There is a reason: reducing dependency number reduces maintenance and increases security.

Is this a popular image format? It is possible to enable webp image format support in future if there is a demand.

Hi Maksim,

WEBP is quite a popular format supported by most web browsers and lots of libraries (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebP)

OpenCV can deal with WEBP images easily if enabled at the build time (it is a build option). Given that WEBP support was added to openCV more than 5 years ago I presume it is very well tested. 

If enabled it would make use of OpenCV much easier on images collected from the internet (especially on Windows where converters are more limited). 

Regards

Alexey
