I have a few videos that have been made using the HEVC x265 format, and they don't seems to play properly using VLC on my old laptop.
Can anybody suggest a simple and fast way to convert these files to x264. I have tried Handbrake and it seems to take such a long time. Maybe I had it set up with the wrong settings.
Many thanks in advance.

x264 Encoder Preset slider. Try veryfast. Quality will be a little lower. You can make up for that to some extent by using a lower Constant Quality setting (lower setting -> higher quality). If your GPU supports h.264 encoding you can try using that. It will show up in the Video Codec pulldown, if available. QSV, NVENC, etc.
On windows, try mpc-hc with default evr-cp and see if it helps.
Also if your gpu is hitting 100% but your cpu is not overloaded try disabling hw-accelerated decoding.
Otherwise, reencoding with a more recent computer would probably be a better option.
Yes, I think I need to use a more recent computer to do the reencoding.
