Tech Support Posted April 25, 2019 Share Posted April 25, 2019 One of the first features we added into KVS 5.1 is WebP image format support for video screenshots. WebP is a modern image format promoted by Google and supported by major browsers (78.37% support coverage at this moment). The key feature of this format is HUGE - 30-50% - image size reduction in comparison with JPG while keeping visual quality almost the same. Since this format is not 100% supported, it can only be used as an addition to standard JPG format. It is highly recommended to try using this format after updating to 5.1 due to many benefits it provides: - Less traffic usage for your front end - Less HDD load for your image server - Better SEO rankings due to smaller page sizes and faster page loads In KVS we added support for WebP in overview and timeline screenshots. In screenshot format settings it is now possible to choose new Image type field between JPG and WebP: If your ImageMagick build supports this format, you can also use a variety of IM options to control its quality as described in IM guidelines: https://imagemagick.org/script/webp.php Then it will be possible to configure WebP format as alternate format in theme settings (will require manual theme update after KVS update, but new versions will have this by default): And also in player settings for timeline screenshots: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
