GoPro webcam daemon is using tons of RAM

[ New ]

I'm on a mac running Big Sur and I noticed that the webcam daemon uses tons of RAM. It usually starts out using in the 60mb range, but this gradually grows and grows when the camera is connected and turned on. One time, I noticed it was using 22+ GB. A lot of this is in swap memory, because it maxed out the physical RAM on my machine and had to move into vRAM. Is this a software bug that could be fixed?

Hi! Try to use the GoPro without the battery inside.

Good luck!
