[vlc-devel] VLC and dbus

Anytime we play a movie through VLC, the dbus daemon starts consuming more and more memory. We have 8G of RAM but hardly any memory is left after an hour of usage.

I could probably rebuild VLC with '--disable-dbus' '--disable-dbus-control' options. However, I am not sure if this is a good idea.

I would appreciate any help in understanding why VLC interacts with dbus and if is it okay to build vlc with dbus disabled.

We are running VLC on Ubuntu 11.10.

Thank you in advance for your help.
