You cannot enable Webp support, as this requires new compilation of PHP. Either ask Bitnami if they can configure PHP having webp enables, or dont use Xampp, use your native Linux Apache/PHP installation instead (what i recommend). Then you can download source packages and recompile PHP to your needs.

Thanks For Your Response,

As per Your Advice, I have uninstalled XAMPP and Installed native LAMP stack server. It works fine for me and I can Recompile PHP as I Need.

Well done, this is definately superior compared to a Xampp installation, it gives you far more flexibility and the Linux repositories are maintained well. Xampp is only meant for people who want a quick & easy installation, but this of course has also disadvantages.
