Description Florin Apostol 2015-11-09 22:56:42 UTC
The commit ccff3be3ab2e5bffcefc12c80a5edb225801f1b9 introduced a bin element in adaptivedemux. The bin element is holding the urihandler and a queue2 element.
After this change, all adaptive demux tests are leaking memory (some are actually failing, but that is covered in . The uri_handler and the queue2 element are leaking. The new bin element is not.

I don't know how to debug the reference count in these elements to figure out who is holding the references.

fix pad memory leak

The memory leak is happening because queue sink pad and uri handler src pad are being referenced but not getting freed.

    adaptivedemux: Fix pad memory leak.
    The static pads got from queue and uri_handler are not being freed
    resulting in memory leaks.
