Abandoning WebP Support

A Blog Post for GameBanana

Due to numerous ongoing issues we've decided to abandon WEBP support and fall back to JPG. The technology implementation is just not mature enough. There was one or more "intermittent" bugs (the worst kind) in the libwebp software library or PHP implementation that was causing empty webp image. Even with numerous workarounds and hacks it was all falling apart. Not to mention safari and ALL iOS devices do not support WEBP. So we're back with crusty old reliable JPG images. They're much bigger, but they work.

    Yeh. It's certainly nice to be able to save space, but the image loading issues have been quite problematic. >_>
