Question
Hi Jeff,  I have a video that shows an ad in the background.  Is there a way to duplicate this video and blank out the ad?

Thanks,

Earl

Answer
Sadly Earl there is no easy way to do this.

Can it be done? Sure, there is 500+ software that can duplicate parts of the frame.

It's probably easier to crop it out - but then you'll have to recompress the video.'

Again, the tools aren't free and it takes time.

Do you want more details?
