Not a chance. Unless you have a much better clip.
Is this a joke?? There is 0.00% chance of seeing anything, given how little resolution your video has, and how lousy the lens is. Heck, I could barely even tell where the license plate was located, much less what was on it.
We need to have some sort of FAQ about license plate identification because this comes up every week, and I'm not sure, even when the video is 100x better than this, that anyone has actually ever provided a definitely identification of any of the plates submitted.
Next time i'll make sure it is crystal clear and easily read before asking any of you "experts" for help or advice.
If it's crystal clear and easily read they you won't need any help from our experts.I think,therefore i am a hamster.

You can't get something out of nothing.
The magic you see in the movies is just that: magic. You can't actually do any of it. However, all of us have seen these examples of legerdemain so often that many people actually believe it can be done.
Sadly none of it is real and all of what you see in the clips from dozens of movies and TV shows found in the following oft-cited, somewhat humorous example, is bogus:

Everything said is true
If security cam video could capture license plates and good faces
The police would not be asking for citizens help in almost every news cast
If places used $1000 cameras instead of $49 cameras
And good lenses, higher resolution etc...
There would be a better chance of maybe enhancing it...maybe

jagabo is one of the few who has ever manged to recover any useful information from video posted with any of these requests, so I'd say that qualifies him to make a summary judgement on such matters.

The problem with the OP's video wasn't that it was blurred. The license plate was too small in the frame and detail had been obliterated by compression. Here's a crop of a frame with one of the best shots of the license plate:

From one of your links:
It is well seen that addition of even a very small noise causes serious distortions, which fact substantially limits application of the method.
yes there are de-blurring algorithms that work(google just developed a great one), BUT like jagabo says it's a matter of number of pixels the program has to work with. a 10 megapixel image is vastly different than trying to get a 10 pixel by 20 pixel license plate readable.--
