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.

Recently I haven't been able to spot any difference. Hope this helps.


Of course you can't. The only way people can spot the difference is if you make stillframes and zoom in 56 times.

I can guarantee you: even hoity-toity "indy" videographers won't be ale to tell them apart in a proper double-blind test. It's all a bunch of bullshit, like audiophiles claiming they can hear a difference because their digital (!) cable is gold-plated.
