           Summary: Text overlay rendering is pretty rubbish
    Classification: Platform
           Product: GStreamer
           Version: 0.10.x
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal

The rendering of text in the pango text overlay is pretty rubbish when the text
is small or the glyphs are complex (this was first reported to me against CJK

For example, the sample pipeline:

$ gst-launch-0.10 -v videotestsrc ! textoverlay text="Room A" valign=top
halign=left ! autovideosink

Gives the result that I'm attaching.  Clearly this isn't optimal.
