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.

RE[7]: Video Quality

Yes, to me, this is quite some difference, and I am sure that content providers would agree. For example, if youtube was to use theora, and would have bleed an average of 200 KBs per video in order to achieve the same quality as if they were to use h.264 at a lower bitrate, this is a lot of money per day.

And since youtube is the No1 video provider right now, I am pretty sure they would care about this...

I don't see people moving en mass away from youtube btw.

ok, I am off to sleep, it's 3:22 AM here.
