GStreamer aging

Mikl
Hello,

I am developing application with 3 independent operations on video file: recording, playback and inspection. All done using GStreamer. It is QT app. IDE is Visual Studio.

It is working fine.
As i said, is still under development. So, a lot of debug stuff, start, stop,....
And it is starting to throw strange exceptions at the end of working day (8 hours).
All becomes fine after restarting computer.
Or on next day (it is also "restarting computer").
It is looks like, what it is "collecting errors in a time".

I can not say myself as an expert, but definitely not a not a novice. Almost one years of GStreamer experience.
Of course, it is possible what i am doing something wrong.

How possible it is?
Maybe i need to "clean" something at application start?

Thank you in advance.
Mikl

It's hard to tell without details on what kinds of errors you are
seeing.

Hello, Arun

Thank you for reply.

So, this is most interesting part: i see no errors. in debug file it is only some warnings. looks like it becomes "tired" after X operations. It is just freezing or throwing exception.

Small memory leak? In my app or in GStreamer?

Again, i will think more on myself.
Can you assure me, what in "good" usage GStreamer can work for days, years,.... Any practical experience?

Hi Mikl,

Gstreamer is stable framework and used by man linux distribution.
There could be possible memory leak in the application. You can run your application trough valgrind tool to identify the memory leaks.
