Benchmarks A comment on the recent article about the Bali release of Googles WebM tools (libvpx) claimed that one of the biggest problems facing the adoption of WebM video was the slow speed of the encoder as compared to x264. This article sets out to benchmark the encoder against x264 to see if this is indeed true and if so, how significant the speed difference really is.

"Not good good enough."... yet ;)
With a group like x264 working on it, it should improve significantly, given the massive gap between the h.264 and x.264 encoders.

New replaces old, as services evolve.
Hopefully with time, it will replace x.264 as it becomes better optimised by the FOSS community.

That, or software and medicine copyright is over-ruled :p
