Memory leaks while watching a recording

Reported by: iankellogg@… Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.21.1
Component: MythTV - Video Playback Version: 0.21
Severity: high Keywords: memory leak
Cc: Ticket locked: no


running mythbuntu 9.04, ati wonder ve tuner card, recording in NUV format.

When watching a recording memory is used up as the recording plays. If i stop the recording or even shut down mythfrontend or backend, the memory is still missing. If I pause the recording memory stops from being loaded. After about 2 hours of watching shows the computer starts using swap heavily. At that point you can no longer stream over the internet and are limited to local playback only.

If you shut down the frontend and backend, then all memory used by Myth is released. Which means that you're looking in your drivers or OS for an issue.
