If you are a Pixelmator user, its own QuickLook plugin might get in the way when previewing WebP files. To fix this you need to edit the file
/Applications/Pixelmator.app/Contents/Library/QuickLook/PixelmatorLook.qlgenerator/Contents/Info.plist and remove the dict entry that handles webp.
After editing the
Info.plist, the QuickLook for Pixelmator file format (such as
.pxm) might not work due to Code Signing, you can unsign the Pixelmator's QuickLook binary using this tool, unsign. After downloading and
make the tool, unsign the binary inside
MacOS/ , it will create another binary with the extension
unsigned, rename the orignal binary for backup then remove the extension for the unsigned binary.
