kodi: Temporarily revert PR10247 for Kodi 17 beta1 due to OOM #683
@FernetMenta is on holiday and with the imminent release of 7.90.005 it would be better to revert PR10247. There is a partial fix, xbmc/xbmc#10367, however seeking remains a bit off in which case from the user experience point of view reverting the entire change is best.
The OOM issue will no doubt be fixed (in Kodi 17 Beta2) once fernet returns from holiday in which case this can be dropped from 7.90.006/LE8b1.
Close if not wanted.
After reverting the OOM leak, seeking is very hit and miss - sometimes it will work, but most times it will just freeze playback (though the GUI isn't frozen so playback can be ended). Playback often fails to end at the end of the video, so the user has to press STOP.
With PR10247 reverted, there is no OOM issue, and no problem seeking.
