I have tested #1212 with a empty /.kodi folder and it seems
while watching Videos all the memory is eaten up.
It is impossible to watch a 90-minute Video.
If OMX-Player is disabled the problem maybe solved,
but i didn't had time to make a long time test to find out
if VideoPlayer is also affected.
I have a Raspberry Model B and watching mainly MPEG2 Interlaced TV Records.
Can someone confirm this behavior?

Not heard of this. There is a memory leak with ASS subtitles but that seems unlikely to be used by TV recordings.
How are you determining memory use? Note that linux uses unused memory as a file cache so it is normal for free memory to decrease with time. However the file cache is released when memory is required elsewhere.
Does kodi eventually exit with an out-of-memory error in dmesg log?
Is this a new problem? If so can you identify the first build with this issue?

I have noticed this since my kids were not able to completely view our recorded movies.
Every now and then to movie stops without any reason and the raspberry is not accessible via SSH anymore
and i have to power it off.
Today a had time to open an SSH-session while watching video and saw
the the oom killer had stopped TVHeadend backend running on the pi.
After that i upgraded to #1212 and emptied .kodi folder.
Now with my freshly install i watched some videos while running bcmstat
and that show an steadily increasing used memory until i shutdown kodi.

I don't have and use subtitles at all.
