    Hello were using the Wistia plugin and everytime we enable it and visit a page on our server that has an embedded wistia video on it we notice the load on our server jumps to to 2.0 and the apache user has 100% cpu time (this info was gathered using top). We also start getting the folloing error in our apache log:

    [Thu Nov 08 13:42:56 2012] [error] [client] PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 71 bytes) in /var/www/live/vhostnamehere/httpdocs/wp-content/plugins/wistia-wordpress-oembed-plugin/wistia-anti-mangler.php on line 83,

    I've added the following to the wp-settings.php file:

    if (!defined('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT'))
    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');

    This didn't help with the issue were having.

    Wanted to see if anyone ran into this issue?

    This is a site issue - not a plugin one. You do need to increase the memory available to PHP.

    Hey esmi,

    I checked in the php.ini file and the memory limit is set to 256 MB. It seems like reg expression match in the script is causing a memory leak to exceed the 256 MB limit.
