I am looking for a program that can remove the laugh track from a video file. If possible, free, Windows 7 and can batch process.

    That's gonna be a tough nut to crack, and you'll still need manual work. The only more or less serious leads I could find are in this Videohelp forum post – user416 Oct 29 '14 at 15:17

    KilltheCann.com has a Patent Pending process that is presently in crowd funding to develop a commodity-level device that does just that via your HDMI connector. – user25392 Jul 25 '16 at 1:27

    Movavi can help you. It is media editing program that remove laugh tracks. – TopVPNchoice Mar 13 '18 at 8:27
  • Just to add to the Movavi case, the key to the setup is to effectively use a bandwidth filter to remove the laughter from the video via analysis of the existing material. I'm not sure it's necessarily automated. I was tempted to recommend Serif VideoPlus, but it's even more expensive. – James Wallace May 23 '18 at 10:44

iZotope RX plugin is used to remove instruments bleed from vocal tracks, but I believe you need to provide a separate track which would contain laughter, in order for the plugin to extract the signature. RX is considered as one of the best plugins for these things, so I don't believe there are any ways of doing it automatically.

Similar plugins include MAGIX Spectral Layers Pro and Adobe Audition CC, but I believe iZotope RX is considered the most specialized for de-bleeding.

Audacity might be worth a try. It can remove background noise and does batch processing.
