Nook HD+ and WMA Music Files

Has anyone found a way to use .wma files on the Nook HD+.

 

I have about 5000 songs ripped in wma format.

You'll have to convert to mp3 format.

If you really can't face converting all your files to MP3, there is an App called Poweramp that will play wma files.  It is not available from the Nook Store though.

You would need to either sideload the App using ADB, or access the Google playstore using the XDA route mentioned in other posts or any one of the N2A/ RootmyNook/A4N boot cards.

Best thing is to search the Boards or the internet for descriptions of how do use these methods. If I post weblinks, this post will be taken down!

Good Luck.

There might be another option.. remember that B&N and Microsoft are both working together on the Nook these days... thats partially how I think Overdrive got on the Nook.... It wouldnt be anything to borrow licensing for WMA files and revise the Nooks internal music player (which is in need of some polish)...

 

Just a possibility..

That's a good point. Just not sure of how soon it'll happen.

 

Keep in mind that B&N and Microsoft working together still didn't lead to Nook for Windows 8 being available at launch.
