You are right - it does appear that closing the viewer does release the

It does look like a very serious bug, but I do not think it is opening new
viewers.  I ran valgrind, loaded 2 smaller mp4 files into the Resources
window, opened new viewer for the first one and played it by itself in the
viewer, then opened another new viewer for the second mp4 file and then
played that, and finally just Quit.  Results were:
==180139== LEAK SUMMARY:
==180139==    definitely lost: 0 bytes in 0 blocks
==180139==    indirectly lost: 0 bytes in 0 blocks
==180139==      possibly lost: 0 bytes in 0 blocks

I have more tests to do yet.
