allow upload of jps files (.jps-file-extension for jpeg-files with stereoscopic content)
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Steroscopic fotos can be stored in jpe-files with the file-extension jps.

By adding jps to the list of allowed file types stereoscopic content can be uploaded to commons to build a stock of 3d images for the future when wikipedia hopefully will be able to show 3d images.

There is a set of about 2000 stereoscopic images for testing purposes on commons, that can be renamed to the file extension jps.

I entered a way to use 3d images in wikipedia in the last tech wishlist survey, and I am going to do it again in the next tech wishlist survey. With the file extension jps enabled this would be easier.

Sounds like a good idea.
I suppose from a technical POV (thumbnailing etc.), images in this format could be treated as simple JPG files that just happen to have a file extension that's different from the usual jpg/jpeg/JPG/JPEG for now?

Yes, technically JPS is JPG:

You can load this files into the gallery app of your smartphone, select full screen display, then put the phone into VR glasses to experience the 3D effect.

Maybe needs WMF-Legal review or not?
