centos memory leaks issue when playing flv


I have a real issue, I just don't know how centos is using the memory but...

I took a look at httpd conf, may be I've missed something

when I type "free mem" in ssh
the memory is increasing while I'm playing one video, flv and mp4 on my site.

it is increasing each time I play a different videos either the same.

do you have an idea??

I'm pretty sure you are in the situation described in this web site

Nothing is wrong with your Centos system (you have no memory leak). You are just misinterpreting the info displayed by free.
