I bought DVD Catalyst yesterday.
Both Nook Color profiles have the wrong screen resolution. The default screen resolution is 1028x600, but the Nook only support screen resolutions upto 854X480. So you need to change the resolution to 854x480. Than the video will play fine on the Nook Color.
I assume this will be corrected in a future update.

Thanks for pointing that out. I haven't used the application.

Another free video converter that works well is the Miro Video Converter. I set the encoding to the Nexus One and it works perfectly on the NC.

Well I bought DVD Catalyst and when playing the movies on my Fascinate (I know, not the Nook) the video and audio are out of sync.

However on the Nook they are in sync. So if you want to convert the movie for just the Nook then you should be o.k. But I like converting a movie and putting it on my phone. When I use Handbrake the movie plays fine on all platforms.

I'm not sure what it is about this program that makes it work as expected when using the profile for the device, yet it is out of sync on another device.

Handbrake is actually pretty easy to use these days but the one thing it does not have is the ability to override the volume up (DVD Catalyst has this). I find most of my movies the volume is lower than I care for so I'll probably just live with using DVD Catalyst and if I really want a movie on my Fascinate I guess I'll convert it twice.

I used the suggestion in this thread of using Handbrake's iPhone preset. I set the bitrate a bit lower, to 700, and used a DRC value of 3 on the audio track which helps quite a bit with the audio levels. I also make sure to set the maximum width of the video to 720 if possible. Looks quite nice on the NOOKcolor's screen.

Well, I've been burning with CloneDVD using the IPad set. The movies look great, the vid & sound are in perfect sync.

So the DRC being changed to 3 increases the volume?

Not really, but I suppose you could argue that it does. DRC (Dynamic Range Compression) decreases the difference between the quiet parts and the loud parts of the audio track.

If you are in a quiet environment and using good sound equipment (even headphones), then you will probably appreciate the full range.

If you are in a noisy environment or using a crummy sound system (like the speaker in the Nook Color), then applying some level of DRC will help you select a volume level where you can hear everything without being overwhelmed.

Thank you. I wish Handbrake would add support for increased audio...the ONLY thing that keeps it from being perfect.

I'll second that. Audio gain has been on the list for a long time it seems.

Has anyone tried putting a movie onto a microsd card and playing it from there? What class card would i need to get if i wanted to play a 848x348 movie at 23.97 fps with standard audio? I have multiple former hd movies encoded so that they play great on my nook, but I would like to know what class card (data transfer rate) i need to get before i go out and buy one.

Anyones experience is welcome.

Ok, I'm new here. I just got a Nook Color, and found this thread. I read through all of it and have downloaded HandBrake 0.9.4(not sure if it's the right version?) and can't get this to work. I should mention I am trying to convert the digital .wmv version that came with my blu ray. I just put the extra dvd in my pc, and opened up the folder and copied and pasted the movie.wmv file onto my desktop. When I first ran it in wmv it asked for a password, which I entered, then was able to watch it. So I followed the instructions on this post and used handbrake, the movie it converted, has no audio and is a mess of indistinguishable colors and crap, you can't see anything. What am I doing wrong?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Patrick,
most likely what is happening is the .wmv file has DRM on it. You would need to find a program to remove that DRM before you could convert the file into something the Nook Color would play. Hope that helps!
