Can I disable webp browser detection? It's bad!

I uploaded some animated webp files I created of some videos. I compressed them down to around 400KB and they look great. When uploading to Shopify it makes or serves ugly, pixelated animated gif versions instead that around 2.5MB! I understand it tries to serve images based on browser compatibility but my web browser Safari does support animated webp files and I can view these animations perfectly fine when I host the files on a different server.

 

Is there a way to prevent Shopify from deciding for us which files to serve? I want to completely disable it.

 

I could upload the images to another server but then I would not be taking advantage of Shopify's CDN.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks.

Did you find a solution to this?


I'm having a similar issue where the webp images shopify is creating are much larger than the compressed jpegs that I uploaded, causing page load issues.
