I have recorded some TV shows. I want to remove the ghost style TV logos from them before I archive them.
Does anyone know if it is possible to do this? Most of my files are mpg or mp4.

Yes, it is possible. Do a search on this site for logo removal and look through the posts.
It's possible, but it's not «perfect». Often the final results are "acceptable" though, and of course, YMMV.
JMO --- if the logo is not very intrusive or annoying, it's better to leave the video untouched.
Otherwise, the video does not deserve to be archived, you send it to the garbage can, problem solved
If the logo is translucent its removal can be near perfect. Removal of opaque logos usually leaves behind moving garbage that's more distracting than the logo. A quick search here will turn up dozens of threads about logo removal.
Not worth doing since it requires re-encoding and usually leaving garbage as already mentioned,just watch the show and forget about the logo.I think,therefore i am a hamster.
How do you remove logos? I've seen them removed where the end result looks pretty good (it's not distracting at all) and I've seen an end result that looks worse than having the logo there.
Not that I need to remove logos much, but I've tried it in the past with a VirtualDub plugin (can't remember which one) and I think also with an Avisynth plugin, but not came up with a satisfactory result, however as it's not something I'd do often I've not spent much time trying.
A very conspicuous logo, with a logo remover, can look like this:
or use a subtitle remover instead on such opaque logo.
For pretty transparent logo, removal can be near-perfect, but it may not worth the effort to remove such faint logo anyway.
It may be easier just to cover a corner bug with something else.Author, Producer, Composer, Director - Canon HDV, Konica SLR, LG BD burner

AviSynth's InpaintFunc for those.
The translucent ones can usually be pretty much completely removed. For example, here's the company's video of a song with the godawful Shemaroo logo:
and here's mine with the ugly logo removed:
For those (and for that video) I use AviSynth's LogoTools.
LogoTools. Cheers. I'll keep it in mind if I ever work up the courage to try logo removal again.
I researched several old threads on this board. Everything that I saw was for avi files.
Is there something that will work on mp4 files?
