"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 1080p 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 Free YouTube Downloader Mac. Here's how.
Step 1 Download and Install YouTube Downloader Mac
Download iFunia's free YouTube Downloader Mac from iFunia official website and follow the installation wizard to install it to your Mac. Run it.
Step 2 Add YouTube Video URL to the App
Search for the video you like on youtube.com, drag the video’s thumbnail and drop it to the main interface of YouTube Downloader Mac. Alternatively, you can copy video URL, and the app will automatically paste it at the URL field. To download more than one video simultaneously, you can add multiple URLs.
Step 3 Start Downloading YouTube Videos to Nook Color
When you finish the second step, you can find at the Format field a list of the video formats and resolutions available for download. Just choose Nook Color supported formats as the output format.
Nook Color Supported Formats
Audio: MP3, AAC
Therefore, you can download the video to MP4. After the video is completely downloaded to your computer, you can click the folder icon to view the file. To download YouTube videos to Nook Color, the last step is to transfer the downloaded video file to your Nook Color for offline viewing. No conversion is needed!
