I know how to hide a watermark logo with VLC player, it's ok;
but my favorite player is MPC-HC, and I don't know how to do the same thing.
I searched with avisynth+, I found a solution, but half satisfed, I would like to included filter in mpc-hc like VLC does,
without avisynth, which is rather designed to re-encode the video.
Do you know a way to remove a logo in real time with MPC-HC ?

It's true, but the sound is no more "direct stream" -> no more bitstream AC3 5.1, and all my files have to write their index, so a little bit long...
With VLC it's flawless, and I would like the same, if possible with MPC-HC, with a plugin or a filter I still don't know...
And I ask about that if this filter exist.
You can mask the logo with a pixel shader in mpc-hc and recenter image (or mask with corner box):
This is not equivalent to Avisynth DeLogo or the built-in features in ffdshow and VLC that requires providing and precise positioning a mask file. Mpc-hc doesn't have this feature built-in.
Thanks for your solutions.
It's true, I forgot about ffdshow as it is no more developped since 6 years ago and no more installed on my computer...
I'll look your bAR_Mask.hlsl too, thank you.
Before that , I searched for a "Avisynth+ solution", but as I can't have my bitstream audio, I little gave up... :
DeLogo is 32bit only...
DeLogoHD is too complicated to create the mask in .lgd format:
I was trying to understand how "InpaintDelogo" works...
has MaskCrop: similar to vlc crop (the simplest solution is often to crop the logo)
and MaskBox + first pixel horiz dynamic fill (set Mode to 21): similar to VLC remove logo without providing an actual Mask file.
In the general case removing logos from a compressed video is not a simple problem, because logos are rarely a single color, and not always at the same place.

Oops, I just noticed you were talking about InpaintDelogo, not InpaintLogo. The instructions below are for the latter.
The basics are pretty simple. You need to supply a mask that marks where the logo is, then call InpaintLogo() with that mask.
You can always export a frame and edit it in a paint program to create a mask. But an easier is to find a completely black frame (aside from the logo), then use that as your mask.
LWlibavVideoSource("video.mkv") logo = Trim(43666,43666).mt_binarize(30).mt_expand().mt_expand(chroma="-128") InpaintLogo(mask=logo, radius=10.0)
A black frame with logo:

Converted to a mask with Trim(43666,43666).mt_binarize(30).mt_expand().mt_e xpand(chroma="-128"):

A frame before Inpaint:

In some parts of the video it works well, in others not so well.
Of course, this particular logo is semi-transparent and would be better removed with an unblending.
