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.

Member since:

"when you say, "do you want the foss, or the best", you are sorely missing a point.

for some purposes, such as the web standard, its simply not an option choosing something non free like h264, so its not a question of good, theora is the ONLY option, and thus far superior to h264, which is USELESS, utterly useless, in this regard.

either way, i think theora does quite well. its certainly a hell of alot better than the codecs 99% of all flash video sites use(since none of the popular ones have went to h264 yet), and flash certainly has been judged good enough. "

OC thers always SNOW, as that is the only other codec other than AVC/H.264 to have a lossless option, shame its encodes are to large when compared to AVC though.
