Conversations (an XMPP client for Android) is publishing PEP avatars in the webp file format. However Pidgin and other XMPP desktop clients can only show vcard avatars, that are in the PNG file format. This module is the mod_pep_vcard_avatar module extended to also change the avatar file format to PNG.

This module needs dwebp from webp package as an additional dependency.


Enable the module as any other:

modules_enabled = {

You MUSTN’T load mod_pep_vcard_avatar if this module is loaded.
