Do I have a memory leak?

by myvelouria / January 15, 2009 9:06 AM PST

Hello Happy

I have been using an flv video encoder for a while on Windows XP. I use it to convert flvs to mpegs. It's been working fine but suddenly it started crashing when I tried to input an flv to convert. It is maxing out my CPU. I checked what was maxing it out and it is definitely the same process each time - when I try to open a file in Riva FLV encoder to convert. I uninstalled riva flv encoder and installed a free flv converter. The same thing happened when I tried to input a video to convert. I've tried with several different videos, even ones that I've managed to successfully convert previously, but each time it maxes out the CPU. Is this a memory leak? If so, how do I fix it? If not - what is going on?
