PyQt Phonon Video Player memory leak

  • Hey,

    I'm creating an instance of Phonon.VideoPlayer in my UI and every time
    I instantiate the player it allocates about 40mb or memory I can't
    seem to get back. This is the call:

    player = Phonon.VideoPlayer(Phonon.VideoCategory,self)

    I've tried player.stop(), del player, I've done a sip delete,
    player.deleteLater() and player.destroy() but none seem to free up the

    Has anyone run into the same problem?
