Opinions about VP3´s video-quality do differ. In tests done by the
german computer-magazine "Magazin für Computertechnik" (aka as "c´t")
VP3 fared very well and even reached higher scores than DivX or XviD.
However, older tests at doom9.org said VP3´s quality was behind the
quality delivered by DivX.
VP3 tends to "blur" the image when it is running out of bits, resulting
in "lack of detail". Behaviour of DivX is a bit different in those
situations - it tends to produce "block-artifacts" with sharp-edges
instead of blurring the image.
Personally I prefer a "smooth" image over a "blocky" image, so I´m very
satisfied with VP3´s quality.
Speaking of decoding speed: My good old AMD K6-2+ @ 500 MHz is capable
to decode a ~800 KBit/s 512x240 VP3 video stream without frame-drops, so
decoding speed is ok for me :-)
