    Description

      Steps to reproduce:
      1. Load attached flex project "VideoMemoryLeak"
      2. Run the "LeakTest" application
      3. An h.264 coded movie will be played over and over again.
      4. Wait for a few minutes, while watching the memory value in Task Manager

      Actual Results:
      The memory increases until the application crashes.

      Expected Results:
      The memory increases, but eventually is returned to the OS.

      Workaround (if any):
      Use only flv videos. If you run "NoLeakTest" you can observe the same test using the same video, only coded in flv and the application never crashes (the memory raises but eventually gets returned to the OS).

      Note: I'm using Flash 10.1, AIR 2.0 and Flex SDK 4.1. I tested the application mainly in Windows Vista (32x) but also tried Ubuntu 10.04 and Mac OS X Snow Leopard
