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.

Remember that most users are not really home users in this case. WebM does well at low resolutions - the kind of resolutions you need for your mobile devices or youtube. Of course 320x240 is too small for that, 360p or 480p would be the most common use case for WebM.
