The memory leak problem doesn't only affect video files, but also pictures.
I work with professional photographers and one of my folders contains more than 50.000 files (let me spell that: FIFTY THOUSANDS), not even counting subfolders. That's a pretty much standard use case for my job.
Recursive thumbnail creation litterally kills the OS. On the fly ("on demand") thumbnail creation is slow and for my needs is not an option. Creating thousands of thumbnails in one pass doesn't necessarily mean having to store all of them simultaneously in RAM. Obviously there should be a better way to implement such a feature. Directory Opus can do it without hogging the whole memory.
