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.

You don't know what you're talking about in the mobile space. As usual.

You think the cameras present on nearly EVERY smartphone are storing raw video?

The Nokia N8 for example which is probably still the best quality "cameraphone" encodes HD via H.264 with AAC for the stereo audio. Video encodes at around 9mbits/sec with stereo audio encoded at 128 kbits/sec with 48kHz sampling.
