    VP8 vs. h.264

    It seems that the writing is on the wall for flash. It may take many years, but ultimately it seems to be slowly bleeding while html5 is strengthening. One thing that isn't so clear is whether or not open source video/audio will be the winner. Most html5 news I've read seems to indicate that h264 is winning the codec war. Is there much hope for VP8? Also, I've been wanting to find a good, easy to understand quality and performance comparison between the latest h264 and VP8 encoder/decoders. Does anyone have any information on that?

    as for streaming, right now your probably better waiting on or even helping with kieran's broadcastencoder https://github.com/kierank/broadcastencoder/wiki to be honest, if you really Need/Want an option you cant live without or cant find anywhere else in x264/ffmpeg, he's open to options you might like right now apparently if your quick.
    yes, swar is done, but I'll comit it after I done .nsf too. I'm in struggle with finding truly convertor\extractor .nsf sounds from .smc games, if anybody know, please point me.

    Anybody use wired thing like avivo? It's not just forgiven?

    wow, 8 pages since 30 december

    Or it could be a placebo effect from switching the video cards and upgrading to Opera 11 and Chrome 9 (beta). Too early to tell.

    Funnily enough, the crashes seem less frequent now that I've swapped my Nvidia card with Ati.

    I would expect by the 10.2 release however that there will be a native 64-bit with vdpau support.
    We've been waiting for a 64bit version since flash 9.x and all we get is unsupported alphas. I'm not so optimistic anymore.
