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.

What trolling you tool.
It's hard facts, I apologise if this is too difficult for you to grasp.


It's not "facts": yes, H.265 (or whatever they'll call it when it's out) is in development, but it takes time to create a complete and optimized encoder. Go ahead and take a look at how long it took for x264 encoder to come where it is now. It didn't just happen overnight the next day when H.264 was released. And it won't happen with H.265 either. There will still be a transition time from old codecs to the new codec.

WebM is inferior in most ways and it arrived too late.


Considering how much support WebM has gotten from major international corporations I'd say they disagree with you.

Would love some info on your part about a VP8 successor.


Go ahead and browse the VP9 git repository.

Actually, I am curious about VP9 as well. Is there really a public repository where it is being developed? Any links to that?

I know there is VP8 experimental:

Is that what you meant?

As for H264 vs WebM...I bet that anybody that considers themselves a web power user can pay this link:

Which of the videos on this site can they play?
