@brion Well, shut my mouth. I recently found out Google barely supports it. It's not even supported at all in Google Slides.
@brion the error message is interesting. It recognizes it as webp and tries to parse it. I assume it doesn't grok animated yet.
@vwbusguy yeah it handles still WebP images, but animated is a later extension and I guess didn't make it in yet. ;)
I've only seen it on a couple of the GIF hosting sites, but I don't have convenient tools for converting it when I end up with one. ;_;
[Worst case I *can* read them with the WebCodecs API inside Chrome. I can rig up a transcoder to WebM or h.264 with that, I just haven't got round to it; but support in ffmpeg would be more generally useful]
