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.

What a mess !!!
I see an half to dispute claims of other half.
And video quality and so on and so forth.
And bandwidth and so on and so forth.
And patent encumbered and so on and so forth.

And why not organise a blind test for a week with a vote ?

Show two sequences to the world and let's vote !
Vote for A, vote for B, Vote for C: No diffs.
Results will be show a week later.

And maybe, to see in the comments who vote for what will bring a lot of fun... A week later.
