The old flv vs H.264
on Oct 9, 2009 at 9:42:00 pm

After spending a couple of weeks coding H.264 fall fallback pages for client previews, I fail to see better quality in H.264 encoding vs flv at bit rates below 1 Mb/s, meaning most web encoding.

In fact the H.264 (encoding out of QuicktimePro) suffer much more in motion areas than Flash encoded with On2. My comparisons are mostly at 900/1Mb/s.

Any light on this?

Apple's H.264 is HORRIBLE by modern H.264 standards.

MainConcept (Squeeze)
Dicas (Episode)
x264
Matrox CompressHD

All do better H.264 encoding.

Encoding out of Quicktime pro is crap. You need to use a dedicated encoding application. H.264 is way better than anything from On2 can spit out, if done correctly.

Great, I had used After Effects as well which yielded to similar results so I was led to think that was an expected quality, I will give Squeeze a shot, thanks for the insight.

Thanks !

As we expected.
