Hello, I experienced (10.6) that movie players, no matter the player, especially when playing certain extensions like .mpg and .wmv consume an unbelievable amounts of ram. I just caught MPlayer Extended taking up an astounding 1.68gb even though it was paused. It, and other players, just keeps consuming and consuming ram and occupying the cpu. It is not a one time happening. What is the explanation for this? Is it because this is just how playing movie files is no matter the operating system was? Is it an OSX thing and how it deals with movie players in general? Is it related to certain extensions and how they are consuming to play? I'm interested in your opinions on the matter. It is not a problem per se, but an intriguing matter to discuss, I think.
