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.

There is nothing to think about. Youtube is big because it's big, the rest have to compete by upping the quality. So quality does matter. And companies like apple and nokia do care about quality, because their customers do, so they won't allow to their browsers to use a lesser codec.

I don't even know why we talk about this. Theora is by their own admission not as good as MP4-Part10. If you care about patents and royalties, use that, but if you are an average consumer, you don't care about it. You are going to pay for it in the price of the product, a few pennies.
