Summary0002624: Use different codec for thumbnails
DescriptionAccording to Bratao, right now thumbnails are png-encoded. Instead lossy codecs could be used to greatly reduce thumbnails size (and/or increase their resolution?). WebP was mentioned in the discussion.
TagsNo tags attached.

The issue is that we need to pick a format that is also easily rendered by all/most Gtk (and possibly Qt, and possibly WWW-browser) clients. We're following the standards for thumbnails (which do say png, 128x128 or similar), so I'm not sure there is a need to change this.

Changed to JPEG. Up to 90% improvement, but we should enable switching between JPG/PNG in run-time.
