libwebp wrapper for .NET

Build status for branch 'master': build status Last nuget release: Nuget release version

This library is available on Nuget as Imazen.WebP.

This library offers P/Invoke exposure for webp/decode.h and webp/encode.h, but not demux.h and mux.h.

Key APIs

  • new Imazen.WebP.SimpleDecoder().DecodeFromBytes(byte[] data, long length) -> System.Drawing.Bitmap
  • new Imazen.WebP.SimpleEncoder().Encode(Bitmap from, Stream to, float quality)
  • Imazen.WebP.SimpleEncoder.GetEncoderVersion() -> String, Imazen.WebP.SimpleDecoder.GetDecoderVersion() -> String

Improvements we're very interested in

  • Expose the power of Imazen.WebP.Extern.WebPConfig and Imazen.WebP.Extern.WebPPreset for better encoding.
  • Consider using WebPDecode for better decode error details.
  • Animation support
  • Make LoadLibrary cross-platform (although it is not strictly neccessary)
  • Add .NET Core support. This will likely require introducing a PixelBuffer{width, height, ptr, stride} interface that can wrap System.Drawing.Bitmap via adapter. System.Drawing.Bitmap is currently directly used by the SimpleDecoder and SimpleEncoder classes, but these total < 200 lines of code. Or, leave the core API as P/Invoke only. libwebp doesn't have a bad API at all.

Windows builds of libwebp 0.5.2 can be found here:

https://s3.amazonaws.com/resizer-dynamic-downloads/webp/0.5.2/x86_64/libwebp.dll https://s3.amazonaws.com/resizer-dynamic-downloads/webp/0.5.2/x86/libwebp.dll

You may need vcruntime14 (VS 2015 C++ Redistributable) https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145

This library is binary compatible with as-is NMake builds of libwebp (no custom C/C++).
