Text as watermark looks unsharp

The text I've created in GIMP, with transparent background, (222 x 32) added as a watermark.png to a web video php script, displays ok on the uploaded video, overlayed as a watermark, on the smaller screen (textScreen1.png - attached example), but still not really sharp looking, and definitely unsharp/jagged when full screen is selected (textScreen2.png -attached example).

How can this be improved?

I look forward to any assistance.

Large is very pixellated, seems to have lost most of the anti-aliasing. Presumably since the large image is 300% of the small video, the logo is a scaled up overlay. Probably some sort of alpha-compositing issue. You should really be asking the web-video site what the problem is.

Will the site accept a SVG? A web based video player/editor might do that (or might not). If they do, make one using Inkscape.

Or, if you have the video and the logo, embed it yourself. Then it gets scaled same as the video (not great)

Plenty simple, free, video editors will embed a png. Avidemux for example.
