But aren't the .flv ones H263, only the mp4s are H264?

No, only 240p uses h.263. All other resolutions use h.264, but only the HD resolutions use 'High' profile, while the 360p and 480p FLV formats use 'Main'. (the 360p MP4 format uses 'Baseline')

Or at least, that's what it was when I last checked around 6 months ago. (about the same time they added 480p WebM)

Both 480p versions look bad overall.

Some frames are better in the h.264 version, some are worse

A single frame doesn't tell the whole story. You could cherrypick and chose if you had an agenda. eg. You might compare a I frame vs. a P frame for example

F-Zero GX is known to be notoriously hard for video compression due to its extremely high-speed gameplay without using any "softening" post-process effects like bloom lighting and motion blur that many modern games use. This in turn is the exact reason why I like to use it for video quality and performance tests.

That's why I didn't do a single frame comparison originally. However, someone ended up doing one anyway, but with the wrong resolution in question. Therefore I had no choice but to follow up...

Well h.264 has the potential to do a better job.

If this is correct, webm seems gets preferential audio treatment with higher bitrate (vorbis)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/YouTube#Quality_and_codecs

Maybe it's youtube/google's attempt at sabotage , and increasing the relevance of webm?

But my internet bandwidth doesn't have the potential to stream 720p. >_>

As for the audio, at 480p, both audio codecs have the same bitrate, and yet SUPPOSEDLY WebM still had better audio quality.

Hmmm, that's not what mediainfo shows

480p h.264
Code:
Audio
Format                           : AAC
Format/Info                      : Advanced Audio Codec
Format profile                   : LC
Codec ID                         : 10

Bit rate                         : 96.7 Kbps
Channel(s)                       : 2 channels
Channel positions                : Front: L R
Sampling rate                    : 44.1 KHz
Compression mode                 : Lossy
Stream size                      : 2.99 MiB (6%)

480p webm
Code:
udio

Format                           : Vorbis
Format settings, Floor           : 1
Codec ID                         : A_VORBIS
Duration                         : 4mn 19s
Bit rate mode                    : Variable
Bit rate                         : 128 Kbps
Channel(s)                       : 2 channels

And in case mediainfo is incorrect, demuxed audio filesize

AAC 3.03MB
vorbis 4.00MB

Using this as my example video (uploaded only 2 weeks ago):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tel_s-wfsxk

MediaInfo says 129kbps for the 480p FLV and 128kbps for the 480p WebM.

(I have no idea how you did exported that info, so you'll just have to download the videos and see yourself)


EDIT: The FLV's audio by itself in an MKA is 2.25MB while the WebM's is 2.26MB.

Audio bitrate looks to be about the same in this example, but big discrepancy in video bitrate for the 480p versions

WebM 1630kbps
h.264 1182kbps

I don't know what you mean by "export that info", did you mean mediainfo report? use view=>text then copy & paste

Yes, the video bitrate IS a lot higher for WebM. It would seem they've changed a setting between when that first video I linked to was uploaded, because it has the WebM verson have a SMALLER filesize than the FLV.

But about the audio, from what I've read on the internets, even with the same bitrate the WebM's audio is supposedly higher quality due to the AAC encoder YouTube uses or something.
