Nexus-1 and Desire's AP is Qualcomm QSD8250(1st gen. snapdragon).
QSD8250 support H.264 High profile level 3.0~4.x.
but Nexus-1's hw decoder module have profile/level restrictions.

1. rooting.
you need to root your n-1
2. install root explorer or remount /system partition to rw
install root explorer and mount rw
3. back up your original codec module
adb shell mv /system/lib/ /system/lib/

4. install new

Download file

adb push /system/lib/
adb shell chmod 755 /system/lib/

5. reboot your phone

Nexus-1 can play h.264 high profile 4.1. ( 720p video have some lags. we are working this problems...pls wait next update)
