#13287 closed bug (fixed)

Massive memory consumption with embedded video

Reported by: taos Owned by: pulkomandy
Priority: normal Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: Applications/WebPositive Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc:

Has a Patch: no Platform: All

Description (last modified by humdinger)

I'm on hrev50943 64bit at the moment, running either from a partition mounted in Virtualbox or on bare metal booting from the same partition with haiku_loader.efi, WebPositive is using HaikuWebKit 1.5.4 (WebKit 602.1.1).

Whenever I open heise.de, the memory used by WebPositive grows very fast until all of my RAM (2 GB for Virtualbox, 8 GB if I'm booting into Haiku) is consumed and Haiku freezes completely (takes no more than a few minutes). If I close the heise.de tab before reaching that point, memory consumption goes down almost immediately.

Not sure if this is relevant: when starting WebPositive from Terminal I get the following lines with the last message repeated several times:

It seems the gcc2 hybrid version is affected, too. However, the memory is not freed after the tab is closed but only after WebPositive is closed.

I see that too, however Haiku doesn't freeze for me, but Web+ crashes. Attached is the debug report.

On the heise.de site Web+ starts downloading something full-throttle, I suspect it's a video linked from the sidebar. Attached is the part of the page's source code responsible for that. Would be nice if Web+ waited for me to click on the video first... :)

I could attach it just fine, so there it is.

A similar issue, though here Web+ just quits after a while, can be seen with the embedded vimeo player at the commercial site Nerdalize.

Tested on hrev52058 x86_gcc2 - This consumed 1GB RAM on hrev52058 x86_gcc2 using WebPositive 1.1 within a few minutes: Apple WWDC 2018 Youtube video, https://youtu.be/UThGcWBIMpU

Older x86 laptops are limited to 2GB RAM. This issue easily overpowers laptops using <= 1GB RAM within minutes. See #13214.

Fixed with haikuwebkit 1.6.9 update (heise.de, tested on hrev53024 x86_gcc2). Didn't grow in memory after page load completed.

Indeed.
