Subject: Leaks resources after playing inline video
Date: Mon, 20 Feb 2012 03:32:04 +0000
Package: liferea
Version: 1.6.5-1.2+b1
Severity: important

If I play video included in an item (HTML 5 <video> tag) this results
in allocation of a large amount of memory which is often not freed
when selecting another item.

A copy of the video is also left in a file in /tmp, and the sound
output stream is kept open (when using GNOME and PulseAudio, the
Applications tab of Sound Settings shows multiple streams from
Liferea).

I can easily reproduce this with the Boing Boing RSS feed
<http://boingboing.net/rss.xml>.

Ben.

Hello, I've tried liferea 1.8.6-1 in Wheezy and I'm not able to reproduce it.  When playing an HD video, liferea's embedded browser does use several hundred megabytes of RAM, however when I click on a different feed, it drops back down to about 60MB. 
Can you try testing the version of liferea that is in Wheezy and report back? 

Thanks.

-David
