Tips: Set Output video quality. If you like, you can click "Settings" to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. According to my experience, the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa. For watching videos on Nook HD or Nook HD+, 720p with 1500~2500kbps is just all right.


Step 3: Start the conversion. After above settings, you can hit the "Convert" button to begin the WMV to Nook tablet MP4 conversion. Once the process completes, locate the files and transfer and copy the converted MP4 videos to your BARNES & NOBLE tablets.
