    I use Flash media encoder to send video streams to WCS.

    If it is H.264, it works fine.
    However, if it is VP6 it doesn't work. The player simply shows a blank page.

    VP6 codec is not currently supported

    Thanks Max.
    I'd like to ask if pushing VP6 to WCS can cause possible memory leak ?

    Because currently my memory is going up even there's no one playing any video.
    I know it might be because the keep.alive.algorithm=none
    but if that is enabled, FME cannot push streams to WCS.

    We never tested this with VP6.
    So we need to test to know if it can affect on memory.
    What is your build number? Memory leaks and disconnections were fixed in latest builds. You can try to update.
    In latest builds it works well. RTMP uses keep.alive.algorithm=INTERNAL. So FME works and able to push streams to WCS with enabled keep alives.

    If you set keep.alive.algorithm=none, then viewers can't disconnect properly. It is a cause of leaks.
    So I would recommend to update to the latest build.

    Thanks Max. I'm sorry I meant to say FFMPEG.
