So prove it. The sample you provided decodes without leaving a single
byte of memory unaccounted for, when using ffmpeg. Running
ffmpeg2theora on the same clip leaks memory:
==24273== ERROR SUMMARY: 365 errors from 20 contexts (suppressed: 0 from 0)
==24273== malloc/free: in use at exit: 6151729 bytes in 78 blocks.
==24273== malloc/free: 6534 allocs, 6456 frees, 31822077 bytes allocated.
==24273== For counts of detected errors, rerun with: -v
==24273== searching for pointers to 78 not-freed blocks.
==24273== checked 7487308 bytes.
==24273== LEAK SUMMARY:
==24273== definitely lost: 470742 bytes in 35 blocks.
==24273== possibly lost: 5627024 bytes in 15 blocks.
==24273== still reachable: 53963 bytes in 28 blocks.
To me, this indicates that the problem is in ffmpeg2theora, and
