Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Memory leak on playing .mp4 video (media framework)

I'm using the 4.13 version of UE4 on OSX with 8 GB on RAM. I tried to embed the media framework using this tutorial https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/MediaFramework/HowTo/FileMediaSource/index.html

It works perfectly. But when I pressed the stop button, my memory(available RAM memory) doesn't increase at all. tried to play/stop back and fort only made my computer become so laggy and drained out the memory (until 100MB remaining). Closing down UE editor and Epic launcher will gave me back 4GB available memory. Is it because the memory leak? Is anyone out there experiencing the same issue on UE 4.13?

Product Version: UE 4.13

I just noticed you're on OSX. For anyone looking, we fixed a similar issue for WmfMedia on Windows (CL# 3136661, and merged to GitHub Master in CL# 3149180; verified-fixed for Release 4.14).

I will forward your issue to the macOS programmer.
