    Default Implement BPG format

    Just wondering if Irfanview is planning on implementing BPG image format in a future release?
    http://bellard.org/bpg/

    Does anybody have any plug-ins in the works for testing?

    Thanks,
    Justin

    i second this request too. the encoder and decoder exe is ready, now it only needs to be interfaced to iw. a honey viewer or wtf is ready for viewing, but iw can batch, save, edit&c&c...

    It does look to be a very good format judging by those examples on the website you linked to. The quality is far better than Jpeg at the same compressions. The Jpeg format is so entrenched though that it is going to be difficult to topple it from its market position. There have been a number of contenders for that top spot over the years that have not made it but BPG does look to be a bigger step forward than most of them.
    I would certainly support putting it forward to Irfan as a format to consider (assuming he is not already doing so).

    Question

    is this forwarded already? this will be the next main image format, the advantage is truly enormous. close to 2x. (well, 1.5 is close to 2, lawl)

    btw i forgot, there is even a dll in fabrices package, not just exes, that might make it even less of a fuss to utilise it somehow...

    please, i have tons of files already waiting for conversion/resaving... im not sure i want to learn sh and gtkdialog just to cobble together an interface to this encoder when this format will someway be in my fave image tool already, if only as a plugin by some third party if he for some reason doesnt fancy it himself.

    necroedit: and btw, webp sucks, esp compared to it. (and yet it became supported. why the resistance now?). it was received negatively (http://muizelaar.blogspot.hu/2011/04/webp.html), vs the glowing reviews of bpg. on doom9 as well. search the threads. the complained-about lack of webp browser support is also handled better, with a javascript decoder available to run on any browser. also an example: http://abload.de/image.php?img=1417868877483q5jbq.png and many other: http://xooyoozoo.github.io/yolo-octo...n&bpg=s&webp=s it 'smokes' webp, to quote them. and fabrice bellard is the guy of qemu and ffmpeg (mplayer&vlc's base) fame. worth looking at: http://bellard.org/bpg/lena.html

    Default bpg format?

    Can this format be added to Irfanview: bpg

    See: http://bellard.org/bpg/

    This format is superior to any other format except for the original image at any level of compression.

    See: http://xooyoozoo.github.io/yolo-octo...ts&jpg=s&bpg=s

    and
