    MPEG-4 Part 10 (H.264) definitely takes more power to decode than MPEG-4 Part 2. Plus it is often 720p or higher.

    Converting depends on the container that it is currently in, although both Dr. DivX 2 and ConvertX (not DivX2DVD since it is old) since they are ffmpeg based should handle AVC in avi, ts, mp4 or mkv containers. Basically anything that VLC can play since it mainly uses libavcodec/format for playback.

    kazuya80 said the PC was 'too slow to play h264' If 'playing' and 'decoding' are mutually exclusive I find that decoding h.264 is easily accomplished with DivX2DVD and the amount of CPU power is a modest 50% on my modest P4 2.8GHz machine.
