Hi there, very impressed with your program JVC v1.4.3, but still struggling to remove the date time info from my video clips. If you could please advise me what settings to use, I would be extremely grateful.
Hopefully the clip will make it to you as an attachment here.

I had some difficulty too.
"Diminish" doesn't work very well with a variable background.
"Interpolate from border" is a bit crude.
"Mask" is the one you need (not transparent), except to my surprise I discovered that no mask is found if you set the number of frames to be analyzed larger than 119 in your test movie. This might be a bug (not sure).
The found mask still needs some polishing and you can't use it for the last four digits because they change all the time.

So my recipe would be: create a mask, edit it a little in drawing application (making the numbers a little thicker where needed), and make a second pass with "interpolate from border" for the last four digits.
Not as simple as one would like, but you get what you pay for ;-)

To top it all, there is a weird bug that causes a "movie time error -2014" in your test movie. I have worked around that one in v1.4.4a2.
