I have seen on the web how simple it is to root a Nook Color. But how powerful is it? I mean can you watch a video on it once the nook color is rooted?

You can watch videos on a rooted nook and more

Run Amazon's Kindle app (oh the irony)

Run apps that is not approved in nook's appstore (different and highly limited than Google's android market)

Is there special video format that you need to run on the rooted nook color?

Standard video player plays mp4, or you can use 3rd party android player to extend the support to more formats.
