[macOS] VTDecoderXPCService memory leakResolved
Issue/Describe the bugThe Apple service “VTDecoderXPCService” is using more and more memory when using Shadow for extended periods of time. I’m encountering this problem only on the shadow app so I thought it’s a good idea to submit a bug to you.Applications/Devices: Shadow App on a MacBook Pro 2021 (M1 - macOS 12.1). I’m using Wi-Fi most of the time.Versions:I’m using the universal app. Launcher v4.28.9. & Client : v3.14.6.Steps to Reproduce:Open Activity Monitor and check “VTDecoderXPCService” memory. Launch the Shadow and use it for a certain period of time. VTDecoderXPCService memory usage is growing up.Additional NotesDisabling (or enabling) Metal in the launcher does not have an effect. Restarting the stream every 1 or 2 hours is my workaround for now. Otherwise, the stream crashed or macOS ask the user to free RAM. Memory usage seems to increase much faster with a bad connection and a lot of packet loss. Unfortunately, I don’t have a rock-solid connection overall so I can’t
Mouse 4 and 5 Buttons Stopped WorkingResolved
Starting today (July 27th, 2021), my mouse 4 and 5 buttons stopped working on my shadow. (These are the two thumb buttons on the left side of the mouse.) I have experienced no other issues and these buttons have been working fine for the last year.I am using the Linux Ubuntu App. I have replicated the same issue on two separate computers running Ubuntu 18.04. On both computers, I have tried two different mice on both the Official and Beta Shadow Apps. In all instances, the buttons continue to work fine on my local computers but are no longer recognized by my Shadow. I have tried the buttons in multiple Shadow programs with no success. The other mouse buttons still function (left click, right click, middle mouse click, middle mouse scroll).Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Application type: Ubuntu Linux Shadow Client Version: Official and Beta Local device CPU: Intel© Core™ i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40GHz × 4 Local device GPU: Intel Corporation 4th Gen Core Processor Integrat

Shadow constantly skipping media when pressing the "next" media key via keyboardResolved
Describe the bug (required) Upon pressing the media key “next” on my keyboard shadow will consistently skip media with little to no stop (such as YouTube Playlists, Spotify songs, etc)… I can confirm that this is NOT an issue with my actual keyboard as I tested using the key on several occasions on my host PC and did not encounter any issues… This bug has also been present since day one of me using Shadow, I just haven’t got around to reporting this bug until now. I am also not the only Shadow user that has this bug… This is most likely an issue with how Shadow handles input with this key. Screenshot of the media key “next”: Gif of the bug behavior: edit: Shadow’s forum compression made the gif a little messed up, go here for original image: https://i.imgur.com/ZYN1dcA.gif Bug Behavior: Skips media constantly. Expected Behavior: Skipping the media one time per key press. Steps to reproduce the bug (required) Provide explicit step-by-step actions to re-create the bug. 1. O
