[Libav-user] Problems with Buffers

I tried it with an additional


and with only avcodec_close(), same effect :(

I wonder how I can free this strange buffers.
Valgrind isn't complaining after closing the app, so that buffers are freed

I wrote a test app which plays 10 videos with 800x600 and the needed buffer
is about 100MB, when I watch with pmap.

After closing all videos the buffer is still 100MB

Does some static buffer exists somewhere?
