Theora vs H.264 January 21, 2011

Posted by samwyse in Uncategorized.

Here’s a Reddit discussion from about a year ago of the technical merits of Theora. It features several people who actually implement codecs for a living, so it’s pretty in depth, as opposed to “Theora is inferior for technical reasons” and “probably isn’t of sufficient quality”. The Executive Summary: Theora *was* designed with hardware in mind (albeit not “modern” hardware) and is roughly equivalent to the way H.264 is normally used.
