I am wondering how good the Nook's video capability. It seems there is no powerful display adaper driver for it?

How about 720p video support?


Thanks

720p is probably out of the nook's hardware capabilities.

Also I believe CM7 and HC are currently without hardware acceleration. Best bet is probably Froyo, but haven't tried it.

Your NOOkcolor supports the following video file formats: 3gp, 3g2, mp4, m4v; MPEG-4 Simple Profile up to 854x480; H.263 up to 352x288; H.264 Baseline profile up to 854x480

Your NOOKcolor will not support the following video file formats: Flash (Flv/swf); Mov/qt; AVI; MKV; Xvid/divx; WMV / VC-1; H.264 Main and High profile; and videos with a resolution higher than 854x480

So far for me, 854x480 h.264 has provided the best results, mpeg4 has more compression artifacts. There's a profile posted on here somewhere for handbrake to convert to the proper format. VLC convert and stream also transcodes to h.264 if you want to stream from a media server or PC without having to convert the files.

For it to work properly with hardware acceleration, I think only android 2.1 (stock/rooted) and 2.2 have full support.

Uh if there's audio sync issues . . . how exactly is it playing videos "perfectly" ???



As has been described already, MP4 videos encoded using H.264 baseline at a resolution at or below 854x480 work well in the stock player. Beyond that, 3rd party video players aren't performing well enough for me to accept as "perfect".

I've tried Rockplayer, Vital Player and VPlayer and none of them play raw AVI files (xvid) that I watch from EZTV to my satisfaction. The only thing that works for me is to re-encode them using Handbrake and the Handbrake preset that's available in this forum with a constant quality setting of 22.

The video part of the video plays fine. The audio part of the video does not.

Don't misunderstand me, I've done my own testing. The point I'm making is if people read such statements and then try to watch videos they'll be disappointed in the fact that there are indeed sync issues.

I'd never describe the playback of a video file with audio sync issues as "perfect". IMO the only way playback would qualify as perfect is if there are no dropped frames and no audio sync issues. That's not the case in any of the solutions i've read on these forums when it comes to AVI or MKV playback.

Nook Color's video player performance is underwhelming at the moment in regards to 720p playback. I'm no sure how the Archos 70 could play it just fine.
