Internet & Networking Ever since it became clear that Google was not going to push WebM as hard as they should have, the day would come that Mozilla would be forced to abandon its ideals because the large technology companies don't care about an open, unencumbered web. No decision has been made just yet, but Mozilla is taking its first strides to adding support for the native H.264 codecs installed on users' mobile systems. See it as a thank you to Mozilla for all they've done for the web.

You can't convince anyone that VP8 gives more quality per bit than H264 in that way. A convincing comparison would give both quantitative and qualitative points, like some of the early ones comparing PSNR and SSIM, along with screenshots of the same frame encoded.

The last known tests like this (compression.ru, as well as other sites) put H264 ahead of VP8 in most every category. You'd have to retest with the updated encoders to be sure.
