Well with the cricket moving to TVNZ Duke and TVNZ+ I thought I'd try out the streaming service.

 

 

 

It seems to go along for a bit and then every time it comes up with an out of memory error in chrome.  Checking the mem usage, it does track up slowly while watching, so it seems to have a memory leak.

 

Tried it out on two PC's and they both do it.  They both have 8GB of ram which should be plenty for streaming, all other streaming services work. 

 

 

 

Any body else getting this?   Its pointless ringing tvnz because they wouldnt have a clue what I am talking about.

 

 

 

Cheers,

Try Firefox with uBlock Origin installed.

 

Often excess memory use is from ads, trackers, scripts, etc. which aren't required to view the content of the page. 

 

Agree 8 GB should be plenty for this purpose.

Thanks,

 

yes another browser is an option, but it would be nice to get it working on Chrome. 

 

I'm already using ublock origin for Chrome, so its not that.

I am unsure of the exact time frame of the change, but at some point Chrome will enforce Manifest v3 which severely limits the capability of content filters. 

 

In any case trying a different browser is probably an easy first step before trying to work out exactly what TVNZ has done differently to cause a memory leak.  

 

I mention it because we frequently use TVNZ+ on Firefox, often have the same instance running for weeks or months without having to close the browser.

ok, cool, I will try that out. Might even try edge too, but being chromium based, its probably the same.

 

I'll have to take your word on manifest v3 - I am a programmer, but not in web, so have no idea what that is!
