How to add support for WebP and SVG files to XnView ?

Post by goldnick7 »

.webp and .svg files wont open with XnView and thus I'm forced to use other software...

Supposedly the .webp and .svg formats are supported by XnView, but not by default?

Why am I getting this error?

I have "Display all image file types" checked.

Same error for .svg files, tho I don't really care about svg.

XnView Classic - Windows 10 - v2.49.4

1. downloaded https://download.xnview.com/XnView-win-full.exe (latest version --> FULL not minimal)
2. made sure that WebP plugin was enabled (I disabled most options since I have no use for them), installed and now it works for WebP files!

Still wont work for SVG however!
