Content Aware Fill always generates in distorted result

I can never get Content Aware Fill to work. I watch all these tutorials online where people just create the mask and hit the button, and their computer fills in the results perfectly, yet every time I try to use it, the image is distorted. I'm even trying to use it for something incredibly simple: removing a piece of gaff tape in the background, and the function can't seem to figure it out. Here is a video showing my attempts:

I've tried just creating the mask and hitting generate fill. I've tried creating reference layers every few frames that I fill in using photoshop. I've tried using THE SAME reference layer in different spots (repositioned). No matter what I do, the result at some point assumes that the background is moving around more than it actually is and it distorts to correct itself. 


Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Is content aware fill not meant to remove piece of tape off a surface? Is it because the surface is too complicated? Are the results going to be the same if you run it on a different computer? Or is there something about your computer's CPU or GPU that determines the results. Because sometimes I feel like my computer is just dumb. 

Appreciate any help you can offer!
