>all images shared on lemmy are webp
>/leftypol/ does not accept webp attachments
What is there that can be done for the poor, poor cross-site leftists?

 No.30512

screencap webp pictures and save them as something else you tech illiterate zoom zoom.

 No.30513

funnily enough leftypol uses webp for the thumbnails
I wish firefox would let me block webp again, I hate most images here

 No.30516

Save-as-PNG extension on browsers is useful. Also webp is shit.

 No.30719

Vichan has just introduced webp support

>open webp in image editor
>file -> save as…
>image.png

 No.30735

>>30734
Not sure if that is effective, since it could just save the webp file with the wrong extension without actually re-encoding the image

 No.30746

so much could be solved if people disregarded google's wishes and just used .jxl

pls no, webp is a security nightmare.

>google's wishes
webp wasnt made by google

 No.30755

>>30734
But why do we have to go through that process anyway?

>>30746
Either it should be:
>Boortu saves images as pngs, or gives option on side for png alt download
>Leftypol auto converts the webp image to png.

>>30746
it is, and leftypol already uses it for thumbnails
https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2023-4863
webp 0day from some months ago that allowed arbitrary code execution, no user interaction required besides entering a site with a malicious webp file

>>30749
what are you talking about, libwebp is developed by google

 No.30775

>>30756
Leftypol produces said thumbnails though. Those are safe from vulns.

 No.30781

>>30775
so that's one of your methods of tracking/fingeprinting users. publish the code of the site, the one on gitea is horribly outdated.

Seems one more good reason to adopt it tbh

The one on gitea is the one running on the servers. Yes the codebase is old, but if you ever actually looked at it you would have seen that it's being worked upon.
The long term plan is to realign the codebase with upstream vichan

 No.30794

>>30775
as long as you trust the devs (I don't, so I'm using an old firefox version that lets me disable webp entirely; I can't see thumbnails and my user experience has never been better. this site is substantially better when you ignore 95% of images)

 No.30795

>old firefox
What? Did they remove it? The browser I use is based on a pretty recent version but allows disabling it just fine.

 No.30797

>>30796
yes, it is the firefox tradition of removing useful features. afaik most forks can't really keep up with the bullshit so they just let it happen too I think basilisk/palemoon are the only exceptions, but those have their own, even worse problems

 No.30802

> Running unpatched software to protect from a security issue that has been fixed

 No.30807

>>30802
all consumer software is unpatched software. they added a massive vulnerability when they added support for webp, so what makes you think the same isn't true for every other "feature"

 No.30808

so yeah, I just use whatever is more convenient (old firefox)
