I have a Nook HD+ you can play side loaded videos. You just have to make sure it's a supported format.
Me too.

I managed to successful sideload an app, but I was wondering if anyone knew a method to pin sideloaded apps to the homepage. Getting to them is too annoying.

You could try to sideload an alternative launcher.

Could you suggest one? Also, how would it help? Sorry if I'm ignorant on this, I never considered it.

EDIT: Never mind, I found one. I installed Aplex and it's working like a charm. The only problem I have is accessing things I bought from B&N. I wonder if sideloading the nook app will solve this problem.

The nook app would be self-contained, it would allow you to download your content and read it on the device, but you couldn't use the native apps on the device that way.

If the nook native apps do not show on the alternative launcher, you can not set a default launcher and then alternate between the default launcher and the one you installed when you press the Home button, based on whether you want to access your apps, or the native ones.

The Nook native apps do show up in the launcher. I got at my books by using Aplex to pin activities (I'm not sure if this is possible in other launchers). The activity I pinned was the Library activity denoted as "com.bn.nook.library.MainActivity" for anyone who is interested. You can get at the shop by pinning the shop by pin the activity denoted, "com.bn.nook.shop.WebStorefrontActivity"

Then you can make the alternative launcher the default one. All launchers on the market allow you to pin apps, it's a basic feature.

I have the Nook Tablet and I've always been able to sideload my own books. When I install a blank SD card, the Nook writes a "My Files" folder to it that contains these folders: Books, Documents, Magazines, Music, Newspapers, NOOK Kids Recordings, Pictures, and Videos. Essentially, the same folders that are in the main memory. It doesn't matter whether I copy books to the Books folder in main memory or the SD card, they show up in my library.

I just assumed the Color worked the same as the Tablet. I don't use Windows Media Player either. I use Calibre!
I just pulled out the year-old NC and tried to get something into its true LIBRARY without sideloading over a USB-tethered connection because ... once the HD goes live, we're talking Windows MP 11 which I don't want to use, period.

Dropbox (an app available for both the NC and HD in the B&N market) doesn't get files into the NC's library. It's not IMPOSSIBLE to read a dropbox-provided book, but it's difficult and I couldn't reproduce the steps I took to accomplish that one-time successful task with a gun to my head.

And an old complaint: There's no real Nook file manager which will allow one to get files from or to the SD card or from online Dropbox storage to the NC's primary storage where items may become part of the device's official LIBRARY.

Just do it, already. B&N. This is tired. You're asking at least $200 for your toy.

I pulled the trigger on the HD+ at Target today. I also did them a favor and got most of the display models online and updated Working Google Play was the last straw--the HD+ is looking like another great tinkerer's tablet from B&N. I imagine I'll get hacking after laundry tonight.

Nope. I posted in this thread and one in the Nook Forums. Unfortunately I did not check my typing, in this thread, and hit $16.00 instead of $45.00.
This was my local small town Georgia Target. I do not know about any others.

Google Play and Titanium Backup are installed and I popped the 32GB SD out of my NC and into my HD The screen is great and the 2.0.2 firmware is fairly snappy. Coming from the NC the screen seems huge, but so crisp. I watched the web series Dynamo on here while I was troubleshooting some boot problems on the NC and it was gorgeous. It does feel a little large for a reading tablet, but worst case scenario I use big margins

There is a free file manager app available:
