leak with native encoders when receive container'ed input

Description

Summary of the bug:
How to reproduce (in one line...):
In my particular case, input from an mpegts file, and re-encode to mpeg4 video. Here is a one liner equivalent (you could optionally create the .ts file before hand):

% ./ffmpeg_g  -f lavfi -i color=c=red:size=10x10 -f mpegts - | ./ffmpeg_g -i - -vcodec mpeg4 -f null out

Watch the RAM usage of the receiving FFmpeg ramp up and never go down (suspected leak) until all memory exhausted. Valgrind reports some "indirectly lost" leaks. This one took me like two days to figure out. Current work around is to use libx264 video encoder instead, no leak. If it receives from "raw" input like testsrc, similarly, no leak. If you use the video encoding codec of mpeg2video it seems to similarly leak. If you use input from an "avi" then it appears to similarly leak. Seems to be reproducible in both windows and OS X (at least). Thanks!

Feel free to reopen this ticket if you can provide valgrind output (this is always required for tickets about memleaks) but I believe this is a duplicate, see the important tickets / regressions.

Ok sorry I missed those somehow. Seems to be a dupe of https://trac.ffmpeg.org/ticket/4899 moving conversation there, thank you!
