I have struggled a lot with different kinds of memory leaks in
erlyvideo, so I'm willing to share experience.
They are:
1) process lost
2) too fast buffering data in state (buffering faster than processing
and flushing)
3) bad default OTP implementation of error logger system, that leads
to whole server failure on dumping state and reason of failure in on
