Reasons for converting WebM to WebP:
It is hardly known that WebP images can be animated like the older GIF format. However, this feature is handsome if you want to integrate animation into your website that loads fast and does not need a browser plugin for playing it. The WebP file format is supported by all modern browsers and is the best choice for fast-loading images and animations. However, WebM animations cannot include an audio stream.
So when does converting WebM to WebP make sense then? The answer is pretty clear from what is written above. In case you have a WebM video that does not have an audio stream you can embed it into your website as an animated WebP image. Like that you will increase your website speed.
