Description sourlover 2008-03-16 23:55:18 UTC
There's a memory leak in mplayer when rendering ssa subtitles with the -ass option. It causes it to leak about 1GB for every hour of play. It was discussed and resolved in this thread:

It was addressed with a series of commits, the last of which is r26068, here:

So I'd like to request a bump to atleast r26068 to resolve the issue.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get video file, get ssa subtitles.
2. Play with mplayer -ass file
3. Watch your video grind to a halt about an hour in as your machine dies the death of swap.
