I believe you're referring to the "glyphicons" in Bootstrap. Those are actually small images.

The items discussed in this video are font characters. There may be some overlap in the available symbols, but many are unique to one set or the other. Also, the way they are used is quite different. The size of character entities will vary with the font size setting, for example, but the size of a glyphicon is unrelated to the font.
