“I often rip my DVD and Blu-ray disks to HD MKV files so that they have the highest video quality. Now I get a brand new Nook HD, but my MKVs are too large to put to the Nook tablet (invariably much larger than 4GB). Is it possible to make the 1080p MKV files smaller(around 1GB) so that they fit in the Nook HD?”

The Pavtube MKV Converter is a top choice if you’re looking for a fast and considerate MKV to Nook converter. The software takes advantage of GPU computing to accelerate conversion speed up to 3-5 faster and handles with all kinds of MKV files, including lossless backup of Blu-ray movie. By compressing big MKV 1080p HD files to MP4 videos of 1-2GB in size, it creates Nook HD ready movies with best possible viewing effect and acceptable file size. Knowing that Nook HD/HD+ does not recognize external subtitles (SRT, SSA, USF, VobSub, PGS), it lets you embed soft subs to the video as hard subtitles while converting MKV to Nook HD/HD+ optimized videos.
