Benchmarks A comment on the recent article about the Bali release of Googles WebM tools (libvpx) claimed that one of the biggest problems facing the adoption of WebM video was the slow speed of the encoder as compared to x264. This article sets out to benchmark the encoder against x264 to see if this is indeed true and if so, how significant the speed difference really is.

Not a bad comparison, although there are some damn obvious flaws:

1. PSNR? Really?
2. The conclusions don't match the graphs - x264 clearly dominates.

It would be nice if vpxenc were faster. Then again, the encode time is apparently good enough for youtube, and they're probably the people most in need of fast encodes.
