Memory leak when playing flash videos (created with Camtasia)
Posted on 2007-07-30
I am using Windows XP Pro with IE7 and my Thinkpad T42p has 1GB of memory. Ever time I play a flash videos (problem only tested with Camtasia produced flash videos), my computer eventually begins swapping memory due to all the physical RAM being used up.
I am wondering if it is normal for a flash video (created from Camtasia Studio embedded with a time placement scroller) to eat up 800 plus megabytes of physical RAM memory. I noticed that if I move the time slider up and down or the longer the video is playing, the more memory is "eaten up" until the computer slows to a crawl because there is no physical memory available.
Anyone have similar experience and/or know a solution?
