This seems like an out-of-memory error. Python is the most likely
responsible for the memory leak, but it could be a GStreamer memory leak
also. If you stop memory-consuming processes on your machine and
increases swap space, can you finish with all the files without
crashing? That would indicate that it is, for sure, an out-of-memory
