    i have no idea what the difference is between these two except for the fact that they are different codecs. was just wondering what the difference is and which one is better overall. reason why i'm asking is that it seems a lot more anime is being encoded w/ h264 and i want to get the better one. thanks in advance.

    h264 is better. It's just a little harder to set up, that's why noobs don't like it. The quality and compression is much better than xvid.

    h264 doesn't play on xbmc, so xvid ftw.

    everyday h264 decoding gets faster and faster

    i can play KAA h264 encodes on my xbox now with a tad bit of lag but still :bowdown:
    download the latest cvs build on xbins

    any other encoder h264 encodes work perfectly fine

    interesting. Maybe in a few more versions xbmc will handle it perfectly.

    p-m 2.0 ghz. it runs fine...i just didn't notice much difference between the two, but if u guys are saying compression and quality is better w/ h264 then i'll just make the switch.

    hardware requirements for H264 playback require 1ghz cpu
