I've been trying to achieve hardware acceleration using nvidia driver 340.96 for geforce 210 card on ubuntu 14.04.4, for an avchd 1080p 60fps file.

Both kodi (16.0) and VLC produce stuttering, choppy usuable video. While playing cpu cores (core 2 duo E6750) run at 100% & 40%. Same goes with nouveau driver.

windows 7 plays it flawlessly,so it's probably not a hardware issue.

The new Intel E3, E5 & E7 CPU chips have AVCHD compression/decompression built in. Older CPUs may or may not. It is possible that Windows knows how to access such features while Linux may not yet have this capability in the default kernel.
