MP4 is the file container for h.264 encodes. Due to how new it is, there's really not much of a choice: you need to use FFDShow, or you can use the video player VLC. The more valid question, then, would be "what build of FFDShow is best?" in which case the answer is really dependent on your hardware configuration and how comfortable you are with adjusting settings.

As of now, there is no codec you can use to decode h.264. x.264 is purely for encoding it as I understand it; to be able to use it for playback takes a lot of work if it can be done at all.

Best? There are really only three good ways to handle this. And two of them revolve around Haali's splitter and ffdshow.
  1. Use the CCCP. This will require you to use a DirectShow player, MPC and ZoomPlayer are the preferred choices both of which come with the pack. This uses Haali's splitter to handle the mp4 container.

  2. Do what it says on the AnimeSuki Playback Guide. It is largely identical to the CCCP, but it does give greater control over the installation and allows you to avoid using a codec pack.

  3. Download VLC's newest nightly/daily build. While VLC is still working some bugs in h.264 support, most anime videos will play quite well. Instead of ffdshow or Haali's splitter, it uses internal decoding.
