HTML5 video tag has memory leak when playing multiple videos in a loop
Code to reproduce problem
Maybe i should also mention that this is running under Ubuntu 10.10 on a 2.6.35-22-generic linux kernel.

I can't reproduce this on Fedora Core 12 x86 or on Ubuntu 10.04 x86 (both in VMWare Workstation). Admittedly I didn't wait around for 2 hours, but memory use seems stable. Are you able to post a link to a complete testcase that reproduces the problem?
How many different video clips have you used for your test? There is a steady incline en memory consumption when i use arround 5 different video clips. I will see if i can setup a test site somewhere that i can link to.. If i use big clips like 30mins long the leak is more significant. I have tested this under x86 ubuntu 10.10 on two machines. I will also try to replicate it under a different operating system.
Okay, I have a test setup the videos are released under a free license so i hope i don't step on somebody's toes by using them in this test. http://184.108.40.206/ The server will be running for the next 48hours or so. //Troels

I think this is solved in FF 4b prerelease 8?! I have not been able to reproduce it in that version.
