Hi All,

Now that there is an ongoing thread about storing
bitmap images inside a SQLite BLOB, I just want to
remember that there is an enhancement request
in LiveCode Quality Center for supporting
webP and webM in LiveCode engine.

If webP and webM support in Livecode Engine
could help in your current or future work in this
development platform, please vote for this
enhancement request at the Quality Center:

Although I have posted this request in LiveCode's mail-list,
the Quality Center is the place to discuss it.

Could you include in LiveCode, support for these
modern and updated video, audio and animation
formats: webM and webP?


Notice that already, LiveCode displays webM within
revBrowserCef (Chrome Embedded Framework dll).

This request ask for displaying and controling
webM and webP by LiveCode script within a
card or as part of a group, not just within
revBrowserCef via javaScript.
