    Guess it's not an option in Handbrake, but it does adjust the "dynamic range":

    I've been using the FREEWARE program "Freemake" with great success. It converts DVD's, etc. to various formats.

    It has an Android profile that works, but you can further optimize.

    Open a video to convert to the Nook, then hit the "convert to Android" button.

    Select the Android profile.

    Hit "edit" to get to the profile editing screen and create a new profile from the existing one. Give it a new name.

    Then input the parameters so things look like this

    $Freemake Settings.JPG

    You can lower or increase the audio sample rate and bitrate as you desire for either greater fidelity or smaller files.

    1800kbps seems to be about optimum for video. Below 1600 starts to produce visible pixilation, while above 1800 creates large files without an increase in apparent video fidelity.

    You can also cut scenes, string scenes or movies together into one, etc.

    The companion free program, Freemake Video Downloader, also grabs videos from Youtube and many other internet sources.... click on the site icons for more info.

    I'm pleased with the results and find these programs easier and more reliable than my first Handbrake attempts.

    ALL movies I've made with the above settings work on the Nook Color.


    Did I mention it's - FREE - !!!

    I bought software that easily converts video for the NC (and just about anything else): DVD Catalyst. It's a lower-tech solution for only $10.

    I use Vuse to download movies and transcode it. Just use the h264 640x360 option when transcoding. Vuse will also put it on your device when you plug it in. It's an easy do it all software and its free. I even like it better than utorrent.

    Me to. Ok, it cost $10 but is well worth it to me. It has a Nook Color setting, couldn't be easier to use and the end result is great.

    Most movies you buy for download are typically coded with DRM and can only be played by apps that support the rights management so this means no converting

    ok so let me get this... I have doubletwist and bought airsync for it.( by the way waaaaaay cool ))
    .. it tells me I can covert itunes.. do you think I could convert Itune movies using that ??

    I am a total novice re movie convertions ...but I am guessing the only way to do this is to get a DVD and buy one of these conversion programs and then add it to my devices ?????

    Hey Fuganater, thanks for the xyplayer tip. :cool:

    I have a few AVI's and tho I don't mind converting, it's a lot nicer to pop the over to the NC w/o convert time.

    Appreciate that!!
