 Recently, I am working with h264 encoder API, found one thing that when i
 use nvenc and x264 encoder, no problem; while if i switch encoder to
 intel_qsv, and under some special resolution like 1280 x 704, get the
 memory leak like blow image:
 I looked into the function submit_frame in qsvenc.c file and found out
 that when frame's width and height are multiples of 32, the code will run
 the else branch in line 1242. The code here av_frame_ref(qf->frame, frame)
 will increase reference counter for qf, but i can not found decrease
 counter anywhere. So is it the reason that lead the memory leak? I changed
 my input frame' w and h to other size than satisfy multiples of 32, also
 get memory leak.
 Please have a check and help me, thank you.
 Appreciate your help.
