[FFmpeg-user] FFMPEG endlessly increases memory usage over time with HLS packaging.

Actually I have several machines in production (dual Xeon 5620 - 32GB - Nvidia P2000) that are running 14 ffmpeg process each, all decoding Full HD mpegts and transcoding them in 4 different profiles each (HD/SD/SDh/SDq) and to be honest they work like a sharm and are also very stable.

Based on this experience I actually expected, just to repacketize pre-encoded content in HLS, to run at least 40/45 (even more) process per machine....

Let me go ahead with my experiments, I'll be more than happy to produce the results.

On most hardware, you cannot run 20 (real-life) FFmpeg processes for a few days but if there is constantly increasing memory footprint or a memory leak, one process should be sufficient to show it.
