Is H.264 codec on Pentium 3 (800mhz) or P4 (1 Ghz) possible ?

Hi,
I'm developing a real-time videoconference application. I'm using IPP 5.3 . The codec has a very good performance with DUO-core but really bad (100% usage) with Pentium 3 (800mhz) or P4 (1 Ghz) .

Is there any H.264 codec version more adapted to Pentium 3 (800mhz) or P4 (1 Ghz) (even if prior or old version ) ? Or is there anything I should do to obtain an acceptable cpu usage on these platform.

Infos:

Decoder : I'm using single thread for decoder

What size are you trying to encode?

I can do 30 fps CIF on a stronger P4 (can't remember which exact model I tried but definitively more than 1Ghz but pre HT) but for slower machine I usually use QCIF (sometimes only 15 fps).
