To restore corrupted images and video frames, a technique named inpainting or completion is used. This paper introduces an approach which is used to inpaint damaged objects in video frames. These objects are damaged whether partially or totally. In order to get to a more visually pleasant result, the moving objects and the background are separated from each other. To inpaint the stationary background, a patch-based method is used. Missing moving objects are inpainted using an object-based method with the help of a contour-based method. Presence of more than one moving object makes a problem; how to separate the goal object from other moving objects. This paper proposes a new method based on contour to solve this problem. Finally, the inpainted foreground and background are superimposed; the result is the inpainted video.
