Can't load Webp images from online

So I’m looking to get a load a webp image from a website as a texture for a sprite, this being done through an HTTPRequest. This works during in-editor testing, but once I export to HTML, this results in a crash. It works just fine with loading PNGs from buffer, but not Webps.

Issue is that I can’t change this images to be PNGs as they aren’t hosted from my own site, they have to be Webps. I’ve read online that this isn’t possible, and that’s fine, but I’ve also read that a Webp can be loaded, but then saved as a PNG. I was wondering if there was anyone familiar with this kind of issue who could help push me in the right direction.
