    Every video editor can crop. Just look for it in the program your using

    VLC is not an editor. Use AVIdemux or Virtualdub2 and crop the sides.
    If you're familiar with AviSynth you can use a simple script to do it

    In Vdub2, open the video. Select video/filters/add/resize ( hit ok don't change anything)
    Select 'resize" in the list. On the right select cropping. Remove the borders using the tool
    OK all the way out of filters
    Then video/compression/x264 8 bit
    File/save video (save as mp4 or mkv)

    VLC crops correctly.
    VLC Video > Crop is a crop-zoom, likely what you are looking for is Video effects > Crop.

    More generally masking can be done at playback in mpc-hc/be with a pixel shader
    ex: https://github.com/butterw/bShaders/blob/master/barMask.hlsl
    or an avisynth script.

    The h264/hevc bitstream can also be modified to crop without the need to re-encode.

    Re-encoding might be simpler, but quality/bitrate/encoding time can be an issue.

    how do you download these shaders and where do you place them in VLC

  8. VLC: Tools > filters > video effects > crop
    It's a built-in feature but it is only available with Dx11 video Output (the default on Win10).
    If the menu is not available and you are using Windows, you can try changing the video output in Settings > Video, then restart player.

    VLC only has limited suppport for hlsl pixel shaders using dx9 video Output.
