WebM can outperform H.264

Posted on Thursday, August 26 2010 @ 04:25:23 CEST by

Testing by videoconferencing firm VideoPort found that Google's open-source WebM video codec can in certain scenarios outperform the proprietary H.264 codec.
According to the company's tests, the WebM codec - previously known as VP8 when it was being developed by On2 Technologies before the company was bought by Google and the codec renamed and then released under an open source licence - surpassed the performance of the popular H.264 video compression codec in high bit-rate scenarios on their video conferencing platform.

The tests - which will now see the company integrate the WebM codec into its products, alongside VideoPort's own proprietary codec Cyclone which still has the edge in low-bandwidth or low-resolution scenarios - validate Google's decision to standardise on the WebM codec, and show that a future free from proprietary video compression codecs isn't completely impossible.
