How-To Save or Download YouTube Online Videos on the nookColor

videodownloadEveryone loves online videos right? YouTube has made just about everything available online, but sometimes when you are on the go and would like to have a local copy.  There are conversion utilities on the web you can use from your computer to create MP4 files that you can side load to your nookColor.  You copy and paste in the video site URL and it does the conversion for you.  Many of these tools require Java or Flash so they aren't useful for doing the whole process on the nookColor itself (it doesn't support Flash or Java applets).

The good news for nookColor owners there are some websites now that don't require java apps to save videos locally and it's quite easy (and free)!  The steps below will work for Direct Download, YouTube (HQ and HD), Google Video, Sevenload, MySpace, Dailymotion (HQ), Vimeo (HQ), Metacafe, MyVideo, & Veoh.

1) Visit a video site like on your nookColor and Find the video you want to download.
2) Click on the URL at the top. 
It will highlight the URL, swipe your finger across it to the right to get to the beginning of the URL.
3) Add
to the front of the YouTube URL. (Don't forget the end slash after .net)
4) nookTalk will redirect you to the ClipConverter site and pre-select the right options, Just scroll down and Tap "Start"
5) Tap the download link, when finished tap save. You may get a pop-up ad, just close it first.
6) Go to Library, My Files, My Downloads. Your video should be there, click to launch it.  You can not open it from the download option on the nook browser.

I was able to download videos and watch them on my nookColor, hope it works well for you too! If you find this process on the nook painful you can do these same steps on your computer and side-load the video file you download.

Thank you for these instructions, really helpful!! I always use acethinker video downloader to save YouTube videos to my nookcolor, It's a free web-based application, you don't have to download or install anything.
