Comment (by vindicator):

 I trimmed the 1 hour (1.1GB) stream down to the part that was affected,
 making it 1 minute (20MB) using:
 $ ffmpeg -i <path>/<input>.ts -c:v copy -c:a copy -ss 17:15.0 -t 1:00.0

 For some reason, the audio doesn't play with ffplay when trimmed, but if
 you wait like maybe 10 seconds, your RAM usage will spike.
 Mine just went from 2.9GB to 4.6GB before I forcefully closed it.

 Also, for some reason I didn't get any email notification of mkver's
 Could it be due to special character's in my address?

 I noticed the upload page is for videolan, but my issue was with ffplay.
 The upload has completed now.
