I have tested this on 6 totaly different machines and 3 different TV cards all with the same results. I have tested with a few previous versions and have had memory problems aswell. As I use mediaportal just changing videos, going into and out of fullscreen (just normal operations) I watched the memory go from 210meg to 890, and I have seen it go passed 1500meg!!! Is there going to be a fix for this as I was hopping it would be in MediaPortal 0.2 RC2.

    Its obviously not reproducable enough if it hasnt been fixed. Ive just tried it on both machines and neither of which exceed 130meg of memory. Goes between 60 and 130meg while doing what you described. 10mins in its still holding steady.

    Note that none of the mediaportal team members has experienced this.
    From the sounds of it, it should be easy to reproduce and we would have had much more bug reports on this issue. Since we dont, i suspect its a local problem somehow.
    Offcourse it can be a MP problem, but please remind it can also be:

    - buggy VGA drivers
    - buggy TV card drivers
    - buggy soundcard drivers
    - buggy video/audio codecs
    etc etc etc

    At this moment I am not convinced yet its a real bug of MP

    Thanks

    I am just using ATI Drivers, and the AverMedia WDM Drivers, I think it might have something to do with the KLite codec pack then (I think it is called). As just now I had to restart MP as I was watching the memory rise quite quickly while a movie was paused. I started at 278meg closed MP around 890meg. I have also tried it with NVidia GF4800se and haupage card.

    Also I have not had any problems with Mediaplayer or Others which makes me think it is not a prob with the codecs?

    I really would like to get it working. It is a great media player. I love playing Tetris with my Streamzap remote!

    Please don't take my post as if I am saying "This is a crap app", as I am saying "Can you help me get this great MP working right please..."

    vh-bil,

    I think if you really want help (please don't consider this a slam and as a cut against you) you need to fill out the support template. There is a support tool (it can be found at the beginning of this forum in the announcement post at the top of General Support) which can do this for you almost automatically. Once that information is posted then maybe a developer or someone else can look at the condition you are in nd provide some help. At the present time most anyone can do is ask twety+ questions and that gets old real fast.

    Mike

    it could well be a codec pack they are well known for wreaking havoc on a system!

    Could you make sure that you are in vmr9 video rendering for tv and movies etc... rather than vmr7

    Thanks

    Thank you every one that replyed. The problem I think was the VMR set to 7. After setting it to 9 I have not had any crazy ram usage. I am not sure what VMR is but maybe 7 shouldn't be an option if it can cause such problems or maybe make 9 standard. But as I said, I do not know what it is.

    I actualy work as a programmer but in Live Communication Server and Business apps, I really do not know much about building graphs for codecs video or audio. Would love to help if there was anything for me to do...
