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.

The right answer is that HTML5 shouldn't be based around a codec that cannot be legally used without paying royalties and licensing fees. That completely flies in the face of how the 'Net works.

I've never heard anyone say Theora has better quality than h264.
