Description Paul Slootman 2019-01-16 12:10:17 UTC
There are a number of file extensions that are already mostly compressed that are not yet listed in DEFAULT_DONT_COMPRESS in loadparm.c. These are probable candidates to add:

- webm (audiovisual media file formt)
- webp (image format)
- ogv (Ogg container format)
- squashfs (used for e.g. Debian live images)

I'm sure there are more, hopefully people can add those to this bug report?
