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.

And Theora is more widely available than H.264? Seriously?

You misinterpreted what I said. I wasn't saying it is widely available now, but it has the ability to be widely available because it isn't patent encumbered, which means anyone can implement it in any piece of software or hardware without patent or DRM issues.
