There are a couple of points that make me wonder. It's hard to tell, but there seems to be very little difference in the brightness between the individual stars, which seems unlikely. In addition, there is what looks like a consistent 'alignment' of dots from bottom left to top right, which makes me think it might be an artifact of the processing.
How does the 'stacked' image compare with a single frame from the video? Have you tried stacking in an alternative program like AutoStakkert?
Could you take a dozen frames or so (not from the same section of the video) and stack them using different software such as DSS
