"We went with the Nook Color because the salesperson told us it could play videos. That would make it great for entertaining the kids on car rides, etc. We expected we would be able to watch YouTube videos on Nook color; however, we have been completely unsuccessful in this effort. On my nook color, YouTube videos: 1, don't have sound, and 2, have much poorer resolution than I'd expect on an iPad or computer. I know that the nook color is first and foremost an ereader, but I was wondering if it is possible to download and watch YouTube videos on Nook color?"
As soon as Barnes & Noble released the Android-powered Nook Color, one question that many people were asking was would you be able to watch YouTube videos on Nook Color, or free download the YouTube videos for playing on Nook Color.
One of the simplest ways we've found to download YouTube and YouTube HD videos onto the Nook Color is by using iFunia YouTube Converter for Mac. Here's how:

The last step is to click "Convert" icon to start converting YouTube videos to Nook Color on Mac.
There are also various output settings like bitrate, channel, framerate, resolution, etc. Personally, I prefer to stick with the default profile because the good video and audio quality given by the program.
