Hello, using the HTML5 player: https://github.com/kaltura/kaltura-player-js
What is the recommended player lifecycle (e.g. player needs to shown/hidden/moved)?
- can the player be created/destroyed/re-created on demand? How to dispose the player?
- or should we keep a single player instance? Can it be re-parented? Can the media be unloaded?
From my experimentations, the player doesn’t dispose correctly (memory leaks after
destroy()) and the instance has to be reused:
kalturaPlayer = KalturaPlayer.setup(config);
placeholder.innerHTML = '';
// no good, it leaks!
Good thing though: player DIV can be re-parented so it can be paused/detached and reattached as needed.
hi … is there a solution for this ?
i also can see kWidget.destroy( target ) is retaining references to dom …
Detached HTMLDivElement retained size is big, losing 2+MB every embed/destroy cycle
… this seems like a major issue to have this bug
