A standalone player that is DivX certified reads the video header looking for 'DivX' or 'XviD' (functionally the same codec).
The 4CC changer re-writes the header accordingly.
Since an h264 file uses neither of these codecs, changing the header is not enough.
You must recode the files using the likes of StaxRip.
