As an alternative to the procedure in question, you can remove the writings and logos present in the video by cutting the portion of the video in which they are present. The practice is not advisable, as it still involves removing a part of the video hindering its correct display but, if the filter included in Avidemux that I told you about in the previous lines does not bring the desired reonts, it can still represent a good alternative. .

In this second case, what you have to do is go to the menu Video> Filters (top) and select the wording Transform in the left part of the additional window that appears on the screen. Afterward, double-click on the entry Crop in the center column.
