cwebp chokes on YCCK JPGs
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I tried uploading the same file to beta and it's spinning for a long time before failing with a 504.

Trying to run a cwebp command on thumbor2001 I'm getting an instantaneous error:

gilles@thumbor2001:~$ cwebp 113px-Constitution_of_India.jpg -metadata all -q 50 -quiet -o -
Unsupported color conversion request
Error! Could not process file 113px-Constitution_of_India.jpg
Error! Cannot read input picture file '113px-Constitution_of_India.jpg'

I don't see, however, what might be causing the hanging.

Event Timeline

It seems like cwebp doesn't like the YCCK color space that file uses:

Color Transform                 : YCCK

One workaround might be to convert the file to sRGB first before invoking cwebp

Gilles renamed this task from Constitution_of_India.jpg webp variant stuck in poolcounter per-original throttle to cwebp chokes on YCCK JPGs.Jun 27 2019, 11:53 AM

Alternatively, we could just stick to the JPG we've already generated when a webp is requested and the cwebp command fails. It will probably make for simpler code and foolproof for other unforeseen situations where cwebp fails. What's unclear still is why things are hanging in case of cwebp command error.

To ask Filippo whether it has been deployed and if not, whether they can do that for us.

This needs a thumbor-plugins Debian package update with the latest code + deployment.

Krinkle added a subscriber: jijiki.

Yeah, forgot about that. Before I realised that, I asked Filippo on Monday and he said it (indeed..) hadn't been deployed yet. Reminder to self: Should have asked @jijiki instead, who does SRE for Thumbor now.

@jijiki what's the status of this? Can we deploy it this week if it hasn't been deployed yet?

@jijiki do you have some spare time in the next couple of weeks to deploy this?

@jijiki as far as I can tell, this was never roll-deployed?

@jijiki can we schedule a day and time to deploy this update?

Blocked on deployment by SRE

If I understand the issue correctly, it looks fixed to me now. The following is now returned as CT:image/jpeg:
