    It can be done in either AE or Adobe Premiere Pro, you just need to put the video on a new video track and resize it and reposition it to fit the area you want. If the underlying video is moving then you will have to use keyframes to animate the movement so it stays in the correct position.

    You could do a better mask on it in AE so the video fits the shape of the eye piece on the glasses rather than the rectangular shape it has in that video. Just create a regular mask and add more control points to it and click and drag them to fit the shape you require.
