There is no support for h.264 and even if you were to replace the compression and decompression path using h.264 is very expensive in cpu (unless you plan to offload that from the cpu on the host). There is early stage work only on using guest video acceleration. Can you elaborate on the client you use (particularily if it uses gstreamer) and the guest os?
