Program to convert video to format Nook can read

Hello all

Can anyone tell me what program they use to convert video on your computer into the format Nook can use so I can watch some programs I have on my computer on my nook when I go on vacation? 

Thanks Flori

DVD Catalyst is a popular and easy to use program.

The developer also posts on these boards to help people.

I've also used Handbrake to convert videos.  This program is free.  A year ago, it required some configuring to make sure the resulting video was readable by Nook (meaning, no presets for Nook).  I don't know if that's changed over time.  I haven't used it in a while.

I've settled on FREEMAKE.COM

Video converter and video downloader, though the converter also downloads most things frfrom youtube, etc.

 

they have fast downloaders, converters, etc. and they look nice and work great.

7 & 2 and still playing with the new.

Real Player has worked for me in the past ~ it doesn't have a pre-made NC setting, but its easy enough to make one starting from the iPod Touch setting and raising the screen dimensions.

 

However, last computer I downloaded it onto got caught in a "do you want to upgrade to Real Player Pro?" loop with no obvious escape into actually starting the video converter, so that option might be getting harder to use.

Nook accepts mp4 file format.

 

This software - AppGeeker will convert back and forth from most formats

I'll put in a vote for DVD Catalyst.

 

1) I've seen the developer come here (to the forums) and help people.

 

2) Lots of people rave about how good the customer service is.

 

3) Lots of people say it works very well.

I use DVD Catalyst and it works flawlessly converting my DVD's. I also noticed that Flixster will transfer a SD version of your DVD to the cloud for $2.50 (they will also do an HD version I think for 5). Only problem is they do not have all movies.

I have converted my videos to .mp4 format using this program, and it can play well on my Nook!

Just add your video files into that program, then choose the "video" mode and next "MPEG-4 Video Files". Click on "Convert Now!" and all your conversion will be done in minutes.

I use DVD Catalyst to copy my DVDs into MP4s and Miro Video Converter to change AVIs and WMVs and MOVs to MP4s.
