Converting from Jpeg to Webp

Post by Strontium_99 » Tue Jul 09, 2019 1:45 pm


I'm using nconvert 7.25 on Windows 10 64 bit.
I'm trying to convert from jpeg to webp, but keep getting the message bad output format 'webp'.

This is my command line:
nconvert -out webp *.jpg

I had read on this forum that I needed to have webp.dll in the Plugins sub-directory, which I do. But still the same issue.
Do I need to register the dll?

Any help would be appreciated.
