Benchmarks A lot was said lately about the Vorbis/Theora vs h.264/AAC situation on the draft of the HTML5. As some of you know, video is my main hobby these days (I care not about operating systems anymore), so I have gain some experience on the field lately, and at the same time this has made me more demanding about video quality. Read on for a head to head test: OGG Theora/Vorbis vs MP4 h.264/AAC. Yup, with videos. And pictures.

Why does the HTML 5 standard say you must use this Codec or that Codec? Won't the web in say 10 or 15 years be forced into using an old standard? Why can't they just say this is a video stream and let the page author choose the Codec just like currently you can choose the embedded picture type?
