Parent article: Blizzard: HTML5 video and H.264 - what history tells us and why we're standing with the web
From the article :
"This is a test on anime, nothing else; it inherently biases towards video formats with smaller transform size (like H.264), so the results are not generalizable to non-animated material"
I must add that I never said that Theora produces quality better than H.264. Your comparison with evolution vs creationists is insulting. I know very well that H.264 is better than Theora...even the author of my link know that :
"Theora isn't the most efficient video codec available right now.But it is by no means bad, and it is substantially better than many other widely used options. By conventional criteria Theora is competitive. It also has the substantial advantage of being unencumbered, reasonable in computational complexity, and entirely open source".
The conclusion is that Theora is "good enough".
