Thanks for your prompt reply.
I read this comment made:
"Disabling the indexers and URI handler code will only reduce the required
amount of memory by a very small amount"
Is it a fact that an extremely small amount of memory is used. Does this hold
true for embedded application's where memory becomes an important parameter.
Say i am playing a 2Gb video file. won't indexing the entire file take up quite
a chunk of memory?
Secondly which version onwards was the --disable-index option removed
