Am I missing some point here ?
Obviously there is memory leak during the h264 codec initialization
sequence when MPV_common_init allocates edge buffer and then
context_init from h264 rewrites this value.
I believe you are the h264 maintainer & expert so you should probably
know some better places where the edge should be released during the
initialization if my patch leads to double-free risk (I definitively
do not know internal details of h264) - so who else should know how to
fix it ??
So what is so funny about this actually ??
Do you think the current code is correct ?
