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.

...that after seeing Eugenia post this link on Twitter and following it, the comments have the same old sad arguments between the usual suspects was predictable what I found. *sigh* Even down to the inevitable 15 link lists Lemur2 always uses as a crutch to support any argument.

I prepare to be modded in to oblivion, safe in the knowledge that this entire comment section is bullshit between whiney little bitches.

I provide lists of links to back up what I say. If I don't provide links whiney little people like you will endlessly challenge whatever I say. The links are a crutch for you, not for me.

If you are prepared to believe me, then you don't need to read the linked pages.

His point -- which I happen to agree with -- is that you overuse links. A whole gathering of links just makes it feel like you yourself have no insight to provide whatsoever and thus makes your comment seem irrelevant.

Thanks for doing this. If someone needs more information, he can click on the links. Also, this way there's no need of "copying and pasting" all the information. That is what links are for.

I'm glad you have that much time to waste. It's more time than I have to dedicate to being a whiney little bitch -> you win on that front. Whiney little know it all! Yes. I like how you hide behind the Myers Briggs bullshit personality assassination too. Always good to have a ultimate excuse for being "you".

If I don't provide links whiney little people like you will endlessly challenge whatever I say. The links are a crutch for you, not for me.


No, I don't think you understand -> they are your crutch, because you want them to prop up your opinion. Baring in mind, your opinion is worthless**, that pretty much makes it a crutch.

** as is everyone else's opinion on here. Myself included. Everyone on here is a whiney bitch or self congratulating tunnel visioned muppet these days.

If you are prepared to believe me, then you don't need to read the linked pages.


Why would I believe you? You try to hard to be right, so you must be hiding some kind of inadequacy. I'm not interested in being lectured to. You are not always right. What you are is a whiney bitch that will not let go till they have the last word.

It's worth noting that since you joined "this entire comment section", you have, by your own definition, made yourself a "whiney little bitch".

Indeed. Obsessed with one-upping, instead of listening to people who just may have been doing this slightly longer than they have. But you don't have to have time in the actual field measured in decades to be an internet expert these days, just the ability to search google.

Agreed. I tend to listen to Eugenia - she is passionate about the subject matter, and, you know, actually works as a semi-pro in the field (maybe "semi-pro" is an exaggeration, but having completed clips for local bands to use as Promo, I see her more as a pro rather than a consumer level user.) What she is saying is also my experience as someone who really doesn't give a toss about using propriety codecs. WebM, Ogg/Theora, whatever. If I have to re-encode files using those codecs/containers to use them on my PSP (which is a device I do watch video on and is not Apple, so not immediate flame bait), really, what is the point? Wasting 30+ minutes per 700MB of 720p video by having to re-encode the file is a PITA, end of story.
