WebP is currently missing from the list of supported mimetypes.

It's an open source image format, using VP8 or VP8L for image data and RIFF for containers.

Previously, adding webp support was considered in 2011, but wasn't well supported at the time: ( https://bugs.python.org/issue11362 ). In 2019, WebP now enjoys support in major browsers and OSes. Its sister video format WebM was added to mimetypes in 2016 ( https://bugs.python.org/issue16329 ) and has similar support to WebP.

WebP homepage: https://developers.google.com/speed/webp
WebP source: https://chromium.googlesource.com/webm/libwebp/
RIFF container spec: https://developers.google.com/speed/webp/docs/riff_container
VP8 format spec: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/rfc6386/
