How do I remove censor blocks off of my screen when playing vcd movie?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread
I bought a Japanese animation the other day, and somehow when I play it, there are censor (scrambled) blocks that cover the blood in fight scenes and other stuff. It bothersome because the blocks are huge and it covers a large portion of the screen. I heard there was a way to remove these censor blocks be it by software or tampering with the disk. Please help me, thanks.

the blocks are part of the actual mpg. its just like a vcd with subtitles - its not sumthing separate that cam be removed - the mpg encoder encoded the area with the blocks the same way it did all the other pixels - nothing can be done.

what dont u people understand? its not some sort of protection sheme - its no different that in if u wanted to a white wall - the entire wall, but i was standing infront of the wall when the camera recorded the video - u think u can get some black box to remove me and let u see the whole wall? NO ! when the mpg was made, it was fed video of the wall with me in it - it has no info about what the wall behind me looks like to recreate it.
why am i even bothering answering this? some people are hopeless.........

Some censoring is done digitally and can be removed, but I don't know how its done. If the censoring *is* actually part of the encode then there is no way to remove it.
