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.

Confusing encoding and decoding requirements ? Pretty bad for a professional videographer.

People don't encode videos on mobile devices, and decoding WebM has less overhead than decoding H.264. Try again.

Also, I think you badly overrate the impact of professional video and quality on the web. Video on the web is mostly Youtube and Dailymotion, not carefully polished professional video.
