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.

Recently I haven't been able to spot any difference. Hope this helps.


Of course you can't. The only way people can spot the difference is if you make stillframes and zoom in 56 times.

I can guarantee you: even hoity-toity "indy" videographers won't be ale to tell them apart in a proper double-blind test. It's all a bunch of bullshit, like audiophiles claiming they can hear a difference because their digital (!) cable is gold-plated.

This obviously shows your lack of knowledge of the audio field. Yet another example of awful journalism on your personal blog. You totally should be fired.

Real audiophiles can hear the sound of one dropped bit in several hours of 24bit/128kHz sound. And get a refund on their whole Hi-Fi setup when doing so. All true audiophiles also have a special contract with their electricity network, to ensure that their power supply never goes more than -256 dB away from the 230V/50Hz sinusoid.

What's more, you showcase your blatant lack of knowledge and research by suggesting that audiophiles may listen to digital audio from time to time. True audiophiles only listen to records and magnetic tapes, as they can't stand the cold sound of digital hardware.

We call this voodoo-audio in Poland. People believe in some things, and can kill if You tell them they are wrong haha ;) Then we take them, show them blind tests where they usually fail crying ;)
