What does that even mean?  H.264 is just a codec, and the decoders in 
ffmpeg should be able to handle it on anything i586 spec or newer.  
Provided sufficiently low complexity, you can play H.264 video on an old 
Pentium Pro.  You have to give a source.  H.264 from DVB recordings.  
H.264 from HDPVR recordings.  H.264 from BluRay discs.
