    What a pointless test between two of Apple's compressors. It's pretty standard knowledge of anyone with some experience to realize Apple's implementation of MPEG-4 is by far the worst in the industry. They stopped development in favor of MPEG-4/10 and it shows.

    Here's a better comparison across the entire range of codecs based in and around MPEG-4.

    Better Comparison

    Although H.264 is not compared, I'd say its close to Windows AVC codec.

    That Sorenson codec was good.

    Ehrm... That Sorenson codec is H.264.

    "MPEG-4 AVC" is just another name for H.264.

    Apple referred to it many times as "H.264/AVC", as does Sony.
