Vips may be out of date?


I’ve got a Rails app that uses libvips. The app ingests a webp image, and then passes it to vips to resize it. The images do not appear to be processed, and in the logs I get the error message:

“Skipping image analysis because ImageMagick or Vips doesn’t support the file”

I see on web server we’re running vips-8.7.4, which looks like it came out in Jan 2019.

I am guessing that the log errors and issues come about because the older version of vips does not support webp. If anyone has any feedback or ideas, that would be greatly appreciated.


Just to keep this updated, in-case it helps others, this issue may be due to libwebp not being installed on the ruby machines. The lovely people are Render are looking into this.
