I'm already risizing the video to a smaller resolution. The memory usage
by vlc on the pda increases incrementally. Overall it consumes around 11M
even for a small resolution (320x240) and vb=128.
Can I somehow limit this buffer size?

An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in
a very narrow field.
