Benchmarks A new set of x264 and vpxenc encoder benchmarks have been published. The new benchmarks address many of the concerns raised in the comments about the methodology used in the previous article, such as using SSIM for quality measurement. Theora is also included in these tests.

Very impressive indeed, at how unimpressive this is.

By the time release a decent and competitive encoder of WebM, H265 will be out.

There is already successor for VP8/WebM in the works, too, so we'll see.

Besides, even if H.265 actually did come out suddenly it still wouldn't have a "decent and competitive encoder" yet anyway.. Oh, sorry if I ruined your trolling attempt.

I would expect HEVC/H.265 encoders to mature as the HEVC/H.265 standard matures.

WebM has about two years to gain traction before HEVC/H.265 becomes reality. That is a very small window of opportunity.
