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.

say "good enough" and we agree.

there is no such thing as good in this debate, only good enough for the use its intended for.

and this is not about streaming the latest from hollywood onto that HD tv in the living room, its about putting a already "crappy" recording onto a public page for ease of distribution.

I agree with you that GOOD ENOUGH is good enough for most cases. But when there is so much difference in quality, like in this test, the consumer will ask "why not the other fruit"? If the quality was less apparent, then sure, it's good enough.
