Hi Louis,

FreeType is just responsible for extracting bitmaps from font files and
doesn't have anything to do with using/displaying the extracted data.

What framework are you using for playing the videos? If I had to make a
guess it could be related to the video player; however, as far as I am
informed, the chance that this issue has got anything to do with FreeType
(directly) is almost zero.

That really depends on the technique you're using for drawing the glyphs; a
minimal code/working example with a good description about how to reproduce
it could maybe help us to determine if this issue you're running into is
related to FreeType.
