The point of this post is create feedbacks as to quality control the 

I've found that VLC have a internal memory leak problem whenever user
switch to the next video playlist item.
That's to say by pressing "N" too fast before libvlccore can catch
up on cleaning and unloading memory usage.
It is not done by holding "N", nor pressing + release every 2 seconds,
but rather press "N" + release every 500 milliseconds.

Having said that, seeing vlc.exe in task manager takes more and more
memory, it does not survive within 10 minutes of doing just that.

I am trying to say is that should this be an issue or not ?

Having seeing the lack of users testing and feedback on this ML
which I posted 2 days ago regarding ([vlc-devel] Core input code race 

Finally VLC crashed after that mounting memory usage
to 1.5 Gigabytes.

In the real world if this does happen would have been unacceptable.

Anyways thanks for reading.
