Using a CachedVideoPlayer in a listview

Issue

I am attempting to show videos in a listview that is preventing me from declaring the videocontroller in the initState. This causes me to accidentally be redrawing the video multiple times during the application. I am receiving this error:

FATAL EXCEPTION: ExoPlayerImplInternal:Handler

then

java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: OutOfMemoryError thrown while trying to throw OutOfMemoryError; no stack trace available

with my current implementation. It appears to work fora while but the memory slowly builds up until it is full. How can I implement this differently?

here is the code I am calling in the stream:

 Widget getVideoItem(DocumentSnapshot doc) {
    if (watchList.contains(doc['user'])) watched = true;
    DateTime dateTime = DateTime.parse(doc['time']);

    _videoPlayerController = CachedVideoPlayerController.network(doc["downUrl"])
      ..initialize();
    _videoPlayerController.setLooping(true);
    _videoPlayerController.play();

    volumeOn = sharedPreferences.getBool("vidVol");
    if (volumeOn == null) {
      sharedPreferences.setBool("vidVol", false);
      volumeOn = false;
    }

    if (volumeOn) {
      _videoPlayerController.setVolume(1.0);
    } else {
      _videoPlayerController.setVolume(0.0);
    }

    return new FutureBuilder(
      future: getUserData(doc["user"]),
      builder: (BuildContext context, snapshot) {
        return SizedBox(
          height: MediaQuery.of(context).size.width + 140,
          width: MediaQuery.of(context).size.width,
          child: Column(children: <Widget>[
            new ListTile(
              title: new Text(userInfo),
              subtitle: new Text(doc["title"]),
              leading: FutureBuilder(
                  future: getProfUrl(doc),
                  builder: (BuildContext context, snapshot) {
                    Widget child;
                    if (!snapshot.hasData) {
                      child = _showCircularProgress();
                    } else {
                      child = child = new Container(
                        width: 44.0,
                        height: 44.0,
                        child: CachedNetworkImage(
                          imageUrl: doc["profUrl"],

                            decoration: BoxDecoration(
                              shape: BoxShape.circle,
                              image: DecorationImage(

            )
          ]),
        );
      },
    );
  }

Solution

Try making the widget with a controller a separate StatefullWidget instead of putting everything in one place and manage the instantiation and disposal of the controller in the initState() and dispose() methods.
