RE[6]: IE10 still disappointing

Member since:

There are multiple variables at play. Because the profiles are different for each codec, which profile to compare with which is somewhat an arbitrary choice. If one wants to make a reasonable comparison, one should eliminate at least one of the variables.

Okay, let's eliminate a variable: look at page 27, this fixes the quality to "high" for all encoders, let's assume this is the top for WebM: it uses --good --cpu-used=0 which is listed as an alternative for --best by the WebM encoding guide.

The quality for a given bitrate is always higher for x264. This means for the high-quality settings, for equally sized files, the x264 will be of higher quality (by the Y-SSIM metric they use). You will also spend 1/3 the time waiting for it to encode.
