new version - OUT OF MEMORY issue

  • Mem Reduct 3.2 Portable - Install. This will help you.

  • Can confirm memory leak. Happens both on youtube and twitch, haven't tested any other livestreaming sites yet.

    I've opened a stream in incognito mode and left it open while I was registering here. Here are three screenshots of my task manager. First picture taken right after I've opened a stream, second one about 5 minutes later and next one 10 or 15 minutes later. As I writing this post, it's already at 1 gigabyte.

  • Having the same issue just scrolling Facebook looking for an old post from a few days ago but constant crash with OOM.

    Running i7 with 6GB Memory

  • It happened on Clixsense.com

    Couldn't reproduce on this one.

    engageme.tv after watching some videos.

    Couldn't test as it says that it can't show me videos at the moment.

  • Going to switch to other browser until this is fixed. Honestly I lost trust in Opera completely after this. Such a terrible bug released into production , don't they test these things anymore?

    I am having the same issues. With 5 tabs open (mainly text sites/video sites) Opera sucks up 2-3 GB of RAM . This is insane. You are going to lose users.

    http://engageme.tv -> outofmemory for me as well.

  • Me too using V42 on Windows 7. Started happening a couple of weeks ago and happens when I have multiple tabs open on youtube.
    Very disappointing and amazed that no-one has either addressed the issue or at least recognized it.
    Have had to switch back to firefox.

  • happens when I have multiple tabs open on youtube

    What would be 'multiple tabs'? I've just opened 5 videos on Youtube without any issues so far.

  • Very disappointing and amazed that no-one has either addressed the issue or at least recognized it.

    You would be amazed at the number of people that come here and have some weird issue that no one else has experienced or even seen anywhere else. It is very hard to track something down when you can't reproduce it.

  • Still does it whith the new version of Opera. Damn i completly forget to do a print screen of my task manager.

    'That no-one else has reported'?
    There are about 10 people above with the same issue. I think there are other threads on here with similar issues as well. Is it not a coincidence that a number of people all of a sudden have the similar symptoms when previously everything was fine? Just because you can't reproduce it doesn't mean that there isn't a problem. I agree that makes it very hard to deal with, but please believe us.

    Happened at 3 hours 37 mins 42 s with video from twitch.tv : https://www.twitch.tv/westrice/v/110080586

    only 1 tabs openend Facebook

    Result : out of memory

  • I'm having the same issue on ANY page! Pages with videos only accelerate that issue.
    After closing all tabs, memory still remains full and i must restart opera.
    Version 42.0.2393.94 32bit
    System: Win 7 and Win 10.

    The point is that if "most" users don't see a given problem, including the developers on their systems, it is very difficult for those others to track down the cause of a problem they aren't seeing - even if the problem sufferers number in the several hundred out of the million(s) or more total users. This isn't the same thing as denying a problem exists. There are a vast number of variables between different user systems, in terms of hardware, installed software, and customized user settings. Consequently, the more information supplied in a problem report about a user's OS (type and version), his video system (including drivers), his antimalware software, and some of his custom settings (especially graphics acceleration or not, open tab count, specific webpages or videos, etc), the greater the opportunity for helpers/developers to assist in tracking down possible problem causes - and, hence, to provide likely fixes.

    FWIW, even using Vivaldi (another chromium-based) browser, on that site, one of its processes steadily increases memory consumption at the rate of roughly 35Kb/second, which is about 2.1 Mb/minute. Likewise, the memory consumption of Firefox 50's single process (a non-chromium browser) also steadily climbs at a roughly similar rate though with some up-and-down activity as it increases, which tends to make me suspect there's something in the Twitch site code/functionality itself involved in your situation.

  • OK but why it appears with the last 2 version of Opera ?

  • 'That no-one else has reported'?

    "that no one else has experienced", what is very different.

    Not all reported problems can be reproduced by everyone since many of them may be triggered by a specific hardware and/or software setting.

  • OK but why it appears with the last 2 version of Opera ?

    Maybe something related to Chromium?

    Yeah i mean of couse but i think if no ones can reproduces it will be hard to have a fix

  • I have the same problem, randomly out of memory. It's very annoying.

  • I've decided to test different livestreaming services and see what will happen. I've ran opera in private mode, opened one stream at a time and let it run for 5 minutes.

    Here are my results. http://i.imgur.com/Gq5aplv.jpg

    Then I've opened the same streams in Chromium. Same quality, same amount of time, vastly different memory consumption. http://i.imgur.com/hQZDlzf.jpg

    My specs:
    CPU - AMD FX 6300
    Video - Geforce GTX 750 with 375.70 drivers installed
    RAM - 8 gigs
    Windows 7 x64 pro
    Opera 42.0.2393.94
    Chromium 57.0.2964.0
