 Hi, I use iFFmpeg for video/audio file conversions, which uses the binary
 FFmpeg.  I've been noticing for sometime now that iFFmpeg would eat up a
 lot of my free memory on my Mac Pro.  I would have to quit the app, or
 sometimes restart my computer to get what it used up.

 I contacted iFFmpeg, about a possible memory leak in their app, and if
 there was a way to automatically purge it after the completion of
 transcoding.  They tell me that iFFmpeg doesn't have any memory leaks.
 Except for the 0.05% from Apple diagnostics.  But they did tell me that
 FFmpeg has memory leak issues, and to contact you guys to report this bug.

 Not sure if you are aware.  Is this an unresolved on-going issue, or will
 there be a bug fix in near future binary updates?  Or is there a
 workaround I can do to help/fix the memory leak?

 Not sure what version of the binary I have.  I'm guessing it's the latest
 one.  I checked a month ago, and realized I didn't need to download it.

 Much appreciated.
