Need to delete captions from music video

I have this nice music video captured at a live TV show of the French Canal2. Unfortunately it is all cluttered with captions. I wonder whether someone has an idea how to get rid of those captions. My original is in .wmv at 180MBs, but for uploading it to skydrive I had to convert it to .flv because of the Skydive 50MB limit per upload. But you will get the idea. You can download it from here.

I'm afraid that's not possible since those captions are hard coded into the stream. (even more so since it was converted)
There was a plugin for VirtualDub that could be set to remove signets (TV station logos) by extrapolating from surrounding pixels to some degree. But that wouldn't work here without distorting a significant portion of the screen. Your best bet would be to find a different clip of the same song.

Great, Thank you for finding those. They are not the same but at least without captions.
