Benchmarks Now that Google has opened up VP8, the big question is obviously how it'll hold up to H264. Of course, VP8 already wins by default because it's open source and royalty free, but that doesn't mean we should neglect the quality issue. Jan Ozer from has put up an article comparing the two codecs, and concludes that the differences are negligible - in fact, only in some high-motion videos did H264 win out. As always, this is just one comparison and most certainly anything but conclusive. Update: Another comparison. I can't spot the difference, but then again, I'm no expert.

not realy becus apple are free to add support to webm.
they can even use googles code well except if they do they cant su webm for infring their h264 patent.

so a simpel update to iphone os would fix the issue

Except h.264 it's hardware accelerated on the iPhone...

yes it is but it is most likley not done by a dedicaded h264 chip. most phones uses generic dsp and gles hardware to achive this task. so den there would not be a hard ting to do to get webm accelerated since it is kind of similar to h264
