WebP is an image format employing both lossy and lossless compression, also an open image format. But currently LibreOffice does not support it at all. MS Office have already get support since 2010.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open LO Writer
2. Insert a WebP image 
3. When WebP image is inserted, LO showing Insert Section dialog.

Actual Results:  
WebP image does not inserted as other images.

Expected Results:
WebP image should be inserted and worked as other images in the document. Also, if a WebP image is animatable, it should be worked the same as animated GIF.

Reproducible: Always

On this site I saw Google released a codec pack for WebP:
Maybe one possible solution is to add an entry to access WebP via calling codec pack if available, and we are also able to access other formats such as HEIF.

According to discussion in bug 114533 this is WONTFIX.  Also bug 114532 is about the same enhancement request.

If for MSO compatibility reason the WONTFIX decision needs to be reconsidered, I think we should continue the discussion in bug 114532 or 114533.
