QUESTION: Can it also remove EX-WIVES from videos? I'd pay anything for that!

First of all, I am not voting, because I am not trying. There have been several similar programs since I have been hanging around on GOTD and I have yet to find one that works. All leegality aside, I honestly don't see a real niche that this would fill either. If you are simply annoyed by a stations logo, get over it, you would have to bear it if you watched it without recording it first, and personally I am not about to commit that kind of time to watch a show. If it's a movie and the logo annoys you, rent it. I am not an expert, but if the logo is on the video, eliminating the logo is simply going to somewhat obliterate what is underneath it.
I'm sorry I just don't see the point, but that's just me.
I do appreciate GOTD as well as ALL the software folks that allow us to try their software for free, but I just don't feel obligated to try everything. I especially appreciate the intelligent and helpful comments that many of you contribute, those comments have truly taught me a lot.

had to download the trial from softorbits because
the GAOTD won't run sandboxed on XP

XP SP3
v1.2

resizeable window
CHM Help file

you can drag&drop videos into the app

"Remove Logo Now!" aka "StampRemover.exe"
(strange, & confusing)

installs into directory of your choice, 19 MB
of which 13 MB deals with FFMpeg codecs
registers some FFMpeg ActiveX related DLLs

has Zoom; in, out, normal, but not fit to window?

default output goes to (oddly named IMO) c:\results

removal used 55% CPU on my dual-core

timeline during conversion took a while to "start"
on my 157 MB source file. there will not be enough
time to finish before the end of the day

STOP worked for me (contrary to posted above)

it did leave the partial output file which played
back fine & basically looked OK

i had chosen an area to remove (chameleon) which did
work, not "professional" in any manner but worked

Find Logo would have found too much on the clip i
tried

source file used an mp42 codec, output file an isom
coded - if that matters? bitrate & aspect ratio were
maintained. ditto with sound, & in sync too

appears that you can change the output format/settings
but i did not try that

works IMO, at least in the manner i tried, on the one
clip i had time to (partially) test

@EuroTrader (#25)

Hummmm, I would not be so fast on this. Many people click the Thumbs Up/Down button for if the program looks interesting or not.
This program definitely looks interesting, so many people Thumb it Up on first look. Trust me, with out them, I think that the Thumbs Down would be more important.

After reading all the negative comments (and no positive ones) for this software, I wonder where all the thumbs-up are coming from. Something smells fishy.

Professionals using really, really expensive tools have a very difficult time removing logos, especially off moving footage.

What on earth makes anyone believe a $49 program can do it automatically with anything vaguely resembling quality?

Does not work as advertized. Can not comment on the paid version, since we are dealing with stripped down software for GOTD users.

Complete waste of time, didn't remove logos and the output quality was to put it mildly was very poor. Interface is very poor looks like a badly written classroom project. I'd give this 2/10 for effort.

I tried this sevreal times including some of the suggestions here, but I could not get this to work on my Win 7 setup.

Test file was a 27m FLV file.

The only time this program looked like it was doing anything was searching for a logo. Which appeared to abend at ca. 50%.

I then marked the logo. Nothing.

I finally gave up after wasting 30m trying to get this program to work "out of the box".

A very poor GOTD, needs considerable work.

Disappointing!

To #18 post Jeff,

I don't mean any offense and I certainly agree that theft is wrong. However by your logic we should ban cars because they might be used by a few to commit crimes. For that matter we should ban spread sheet, word processors, photo/image manipulating and a host of other types of software because someone might use the programs for some nefarious purpose. Maybe I'm too much of an idealist but I believe that the majority of people when given a choice will do the right thing. The rest won't be deterred by any restrictions you might place on them.

There have been lots of programs to remove copyright info, watermarks, etc from pics and videos, so how about one to remove copyright info from software and websites? Yeah, that'll happen, won't it? Someone might use it to remove copyrights from SoftOrbits products or from the GAOTD site and then post "cleaned up" copies online free of charge. Programs that remove watermarks, logos, and copyright info are used by thieves and the distribution of those programs enables thieves. Of course, this comment won't be approved or will be deleted quickly if it does make it to the comments page.

Follow-up to my #16 above: Just noticed that in the Remove Logo Now! folder in Program Files, the executable program file for "Remove Logo Now!" is: StampRemover.exe and it's associated files are also named StampRemover.*

Needs some more work!

Programming needs a little more work: The install header states "Click NEXT to install Photo Stamp Remover" which is another program offered by the developer.

When you register the installed program using the serial number in the readme.txt file, you are thanked for registering Photo Stamp Remover instead of "Remove Logo Now!"

The GUI is the same as the GUI for Photo Stamp Remover. Otherwise, the program works if you follow the suggestions and limitations mentioned above by the other GAOTD contributors.

Thanks GAOTD & SoftOrbits.

To all the folks that say this does not work....I've been using this for some time with fairly good results...however, I've noticed some anomalies (Win7-64)....after selecting the logo area in red, sometimes you have to open the options panel and make adjustments (especially make sure the frame rate matches the original)...sometimes you need to export to a different format. Also, if the start button is dead, try resetting the output folder. In a case where it seems to run ok but the finished video still has the logo unchanged...try converting the original to another format, then remove the logo (Do NOT use FLV or MOV Qicktime)(Use WMV or MP4)

#3 Go to YouTube and search for "How the stock market works". You will find a 1952 cartoon posted multiple times with a half dozen different scammers URLs as the watermark. This tool would be a fine way of negating this sort of spam scam. Thanks to the developers and GAOTD!

Many problems:

- Damn slow, and very poor encoding quality.

- The automatic logo detection doesn't work well, as many parts of the picture are includes in the logo!

- The logo was not removed in 2 of the 3 tests I did.

- There is a "Stop" button to cancel an encoding in progress, but it does nothing.

- If you change the encoding settings to encode in, say, MKV X264, when you press the Start button, the program says immediately that the encoding is finished, but the output file has not been created!

- No possibility to frameserve to a descent encoder.

- Offers to save in your C:\ directory by default: the worst place, prohibited since Vista and Win7!

Is it something that works correctly? Apparently, nothing!

RE Comment #3: Pertaining to the legality of removing logos from videos - Placing a logo on a video isn't automatically considered to be proof of ownership of the intellectual rights of the video. Many marketers will place their logos as overlays on videos and graphics that are in the public domain and/or were acquired with Private Label Rights. In either case it's perfectly legal to not only place a logo on the item in question, but also to remove one - without fear of legal repercussions.

It also depends to a large extent on what you intend to do with the video once you've removed the logo. If it's for your own "consumption" and won't be released for others to see - whether for profit or not - then you don't have anything to worry about. However, if you intend to use the video in any sort of commercial presentation, you venture into risky territory. If you "de-logo" a video that's used by a company in THEIR promotions, and "re-purpose it" (e.g. add your OWN logo to it), you'd better be absolutely certain that the video was originally in the public domain or that the PLR rights are available for it and that you procure those rights!

Quite often, many videos are available for free - and equally often the PLR rights are also given along with the video. If you're regularly using public domain and PLR videos and graphics commercially, it's wise to keep a log of each item that contains at the very least the source of the file and documentation of the rights that came with it. In the case of PLR, a document file that includes the licensing information is usually included in the zip file containing the content file.

Copyright infringement can be a very expensive thing to do, even with a seemingly insignificant thing like a button graphic or web page backgrounds and videos. This is also true for audio files, and I'm sure everyone has heard of high-profile cases where people have been assessed millions of dollars in fines for illegally distributing music files without paying appropriate royalties to the artist(s) who originally created the content - and rightly so! In the marketing arena, I've personally witnessed a very promising video-based social networking site completely destroyed just prior to public launch - all because a graphic was released to the company's affiliates that the company didn't have distribution rights for. The resulting legal mess ended up forcing the new company to abandon the project altogether.

There has been a thread of belief that has existed almost from the very beginning of public use of the internet: that the internet - and everything you find on it - should be FREE. In other words, if you're able to download it, it should be yours to do with whatever you wish. That mentality doesn't take into account (or totally ignores) the labors of the person creating the video, audio, text or graphic, and their right to profit from the fruits of those labors by offering them for sale, or licensing them for a particular use.

As far as today's software goes, it does a fair job, but it doesn't work miracles. The software has to "guess" how to fill in the background where the logo once was, and if there's a varying background during the course of the video, the software's "guesses" just aren't all that good - but in many cases they're good enough for home entertainment use. Using this software for commercial use is prohibited by terms of the giveaway anyway, so there's no point in commenting about its value as a commercial tool.

However, this software might serve well as a way to remove other prominent items in a home video. My advice is to play around with it. Why not? After all, it's being provided today for FREE! Thanks once again for the cool software, Team!

Further to my comment number 4.

I tried a show in HD from MTV with their logo in the corner, using the blur option. It worked.

It seems therefore that how the logo is shown/quality of the file determines if the program works or not. 10th time lucky but clearly more miss than hit depending on the file you want to remove the logo from.

Pretty much useful tool if you deal with videos on a daily basis and are annoyed by the presence of watermarks and logos there...

However I've just tried to remove a watermark from a video and this app wasn't able to do that....but maybe I made a mistake?? Who knows...57% thumbs UP in a few minutes time seems to me too much.... something doesn't add up here!!

Anyway...if you are eager to know how to effectively remove LOGOS and even SUBTITLES from any VIDEO in a very professional way, without spending a DIME of course, just read this excellent guide:

http://www.videohelp.com/guides/category/how-to-extract-remove-subtitles-logo-from-a-video-5;66#841

As you can see, it mentions a couple of different tools besides VirtualDub and another VirtualDub filter more powerful than DELOGO called "LOGOAWAY":

http://voidon.republika.pl/virtualdub/ladocs301/logoaway.html
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Video/Other-VIDEO-Tools/Logoaway.shtml

So once again there's no need to spend any money even for this kind of apps.

Enjoy!!

01 The button marked Online Demo just takes u to a page selling the removal suite! Where's the Demo?

02 The Start button just opens up a file destination box.

03 It says it recognizes MKV's but they're not visible on the add files list unless u switch to all files mode.

04 It says if u don't want to deal with a file type u can convert it by changing the settings. Will it convert files that don't have any logo's that need to be removed?
If so, how do u start it after choosing output settings?

Downloaded, tried, uninstalled. Took 56 minutes to do a 16 minute movie. Didn't remove it all the way, and made the overall quality much lower. Complete waste of time. Lesson learned

Selected the logo, made it red, but after pressing 'start' on the top nothing happens and the start button on the right seems to be dead. There is also a dead 'show/hide panels' button at the top.

Conclusion: does not work.

I gave this program a fair run on my 64-bit W7, but it didn't work. I tried the auto-detect first, on a 15-minute video, which failed miserably. The logo was unchanged, and the output video was of poor quality, with many added artefacts. Then I tried the selection tool, with equally poor results. Uninstalled.

Sounded interesting so downloaded it.

First the good news. It converts large video files very quickly into various formats.

The bad news is that despite trying it 9 times and halfway through following the step by step guide, it does not work. I used 3 different video files 3 times, with the same result ie logo not removed at all.

The latter is disappointing but I do now have a quick video conversion program.
