CM7 for Nook Color gets Video Playback Fix and RC Status!

For those of you who have taken advantage of the fact that the Barnes and Noble Nook Color is Android powered and hackable, there is good news from the Cyanogen Mod team that has been working on CM7 for the device.  The latest nightly build has DSP/Video playback enabled, taking care of the audio lag on the device whilst watching video media.  After installing this build on my device, I can tell you that video works really well, with a great framerate.

CM team members Dalingrin and Fattire worked hard on the video issue, with the enabling of DSP as the result.  Both team members worked hard on the ROM in general as well, fixing numerous bugs from previous builds. Give those two a big thank you in the comments for their work.  Remember, they do this for free, this is a “hobby”.

The build is available now on the CyanogenMod download page, and as you will see when you download, has a release candidate tag attached naming it RC4.  Exciting news as the team continues to move towards a stable release for the unit.
