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.

What about more interesting comparison?

Hello Eugenia!

The comparison you conducted is a nice thing, but I knew Theora is worse than h.264 already, because Monty himself told it in public (an interesting read itself):

So - it's nothing new to me. What I'm more interested in is how dirac compares to h.264.

I know it doesn't exist for you. ;-} I think it really isn't serious thing right now, but not because of problems with integrating it with ffmpeg, but rather because its specification is not set in stone yet:

Still, it is close to be one, and if you - or anybody else here - try to look how they compete, I would be very glad, since I'm not the codec junkie and don't know how to make good test myself. =}
