@isolver I think this commit fixes the memory leak that people have been finding with MovieStim2

The issue was that there was a circular reference with the vlc audio stream (moviestim stores a reference to it and it stores a reference to MovieStim's EOS callbacks). I now pass a separate function as a callback and a weakref to the original MovieStim2 instance that the callback can then use to signal the EOS
