Benchmarks A lot was said lately about the Vorbis/Theora vs h.264/AAC situation on the draft of the HTML5. As some of you know, video is my main hobby these days (I care not about operating systems anymore), so I have gain some experience on the field lately, and at the same time this has made me more demanding about video quality. Read on for a head to head test: OGG Theora/Vorbis vs MP4 h.264/AAC. Yup, with videos. And pictures.

in the same way that any enthusiast will not settle with budget gear, big woop...

sad to say eugenia, but your coming of as just another mediaphile. as in, the same kind of people that rant and rave about flac, pcm or whatever being the lowest acceptable format for their media of choice.

or to bring in that sad old car, the people that will not settle for a 4-cylinder stationwagon, if they can get their hands on something with a big more "meat".

what we are talking about here is the common man format, the one that joe will use for his family video. the same joe that will film his newborn using a cheap camera or maybe even his phone. the joe that dont care that upping the megapixels on his compact camera isnt equal to upping the quality of the photos taken.

the term i guess im looking for is "good enough". and to me thats a term that the people you seem to personify right now, just dont grasp. it seems that unless its perfection, its no point in doing it at all...
