Nothing wrong with h.264 - the people encoding it are another story.

Those MKVs are pretty much guaranteed to have been encoded with h.264 or x.264 (AKA MPEG-4 Part 10) - there really isn't anything else used these days. It's what they use with Blu-rays, Youtube, Netflix... etc.

Those AVIs are most likely encoded with XVID, also known as MPEG-4 Part 2, and sometimes h.263. No one's using old and highly inefficient MPEG2 (h.262) for downloads.
