[FFmpeg-user] some containers require "monotonically increasing" RAM expected or leak (mp4, nut)?

Yes, indexes do not come for free.
mpeg streams have no index, nut seems to allow to 
disable it. I don't know if an isom file without 
index would be valid.

And please understand that if valgrind reports no 
leak, there is none;-)
(The opposite case is possible but rare.)
