WP Media Optimizer (.webp)

Description

Optimize images (jpg, png) in your WordPress site by converting them to .webp extension (it uses PHP GD library)
WP Media Optimizer (.webp) only works with Firefox and Chrome (at this time).
If you are using different browser (such as Safari or Opera) images will be not displayed in .webp.

USAGE

Simply install and activate it, and your images will be optimized.

HOW IT WORKS

When anyone access to a WordPress page, plugin check for images already converted to .webp.
If one or more images have not been already converted, the plugin converts them immediately.
Converted images are stored in a subfolder of wp-content folder: wp-content/wpmowebp

TROUBLESHOOTING

If WordPress go out of memory try to add
define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ‘256M’);
to your wp-config.php

Enjoy your new WordPress Plugin.
