    I just updated DVD Catalyst 4 to 4.1.2 (tap on the cat-eyes in the program to update) which includes a new screen size option for the NOOKcolor that I came up with to make your movies full-screen for that as well.

    Before you start watching the videos on your NOOKcolor, I have to warn that there is a small watermark at the bottom of each video:



    I have no issue regarding sharing converted movie trailers, but I have had a few people use them on websites and claimed them to be their own. Of course, if you use DVD Catalyst for your own conversions, the video files will not have this watermark.

    Of course I used DVD Catalyst 4 for the conversions, but I used some customized settings.

    After testing the full-screen video playback of the Kindle Fire and NOOKcolor, I wanted to see how it would work on the NOOKcolor. Unfortunately, the NOOKcolor has a screen-size limitation of 854×480 for video playback, which happens to be a different aspect ratio than that of the actual screen, so regardless of what settings you use, it will always have borders.


    So, with some fiddling and calculations, I came up with a custom screen resolution that would make the videos full-screen on the NOOKcolor:


    Because this does cut off a bit of the video, we did not make this the default setting for the NOOKcolor profiles though. If you would like to make your videos full-screen for the NOOKcolor, you will have to make the change yourself.

    First, the full-screen setting in Global Settings:


    * Enable “Power User” at the bottom right.

    * Tap on “Global Settings” on the top left.

    * On the right, look for the “Borders” tab, and select it.

    * Then enable the “completely remove from device” setting, the 4th one from the top.

    Now, select one of the Barnes Noble NOOKcolor profiles:


    and click on “Modify”


    Then change the Player screensize to 816×480:


    and that is it. Now all your conversions for the NOOKcolor will make a better use of the screen space available.

    Here are the trailers. Just visit this website on your NOOKcolor, and tap on the links for the trailers to have it stream them directly:

    21 Jump Street:

    Source link: 21 Jump Street - Movie Trailers - iTunes


    In the action-comedy 21 Jump Street, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) are more than ready to leave their adolescent problems behind. Joining the police force and the secret Jump Street unit, they use their youthful appearances to go undercover in a local high school. As they trade in their guns and badges for backpacks, Schmidt and Jenko risk their lives to investigate a violent and dangerous drug ring. But they find that high school is nothing like they left it just a few years earlier – and neither expects that they will have to confront the terror and anxiety of being a teenager again and all the issues they thought they had left behind.

    Source link: Brave - Movie Trailers - iTunes


    Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In “Brave,” a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Wise Woman (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.

With ruthless efficiency, Hyperion and his legions destroy everything in their wake, and it seems nothing will stop the evil king’s mission.

When Theseus meets the Sybelline Oracle, Phaedra (Freida Pinto), her disturbing visions of the young man’s future convince her that he is the key to stopping the destruction. With her help, Theseus assembles a small band of followers and embraces his destiny in a final desperate battle for the future of humanity.

A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 16 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following.

After the workers at a luxury Central Park condominium discover the penthouse billionaire has stolen their retirement, they plot the ultimate revenge: a heist to reclaim what he took from them.

In the swankiest unit atop Josh’s building, Wall Street titan Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda) is under house arrest after being caught stealing two billion from his investors. The hardest hit among those he defrauded? The tower staffers whose pensions he was entrusted to manage. With only days before Arthur gets away with the perfect crime, Josh’s crew turns to petty crook Slide (Murphy) to plan the nearly impossible…to steal what they are sure is hidden in Arthur’s guarded condo. Though amateurs, these rookie thieves know the building better than anyone. Turns out they’ve been casing the place for years, they just didn’t know it.
