Bug Description

It is not currently possible to open a WebP image in any standard application on Ubuntu (except Firefox). There is a now a small extension for gdk-pixbuf to support webp: https://github.com/aruiz/webp-pixbuf-loader

Such extension has already been packaged for HEIF (heif-gdk-pixbuf), it'd be nice to have it for WebP too.

Once installed, any standard Gnome program can support reading such image, and in particular, eog.

An example file:
