Default VLC decoder uses considerably more RAM than ffmpeg

I noticed that with the project I'm currently working on which contains only video items and jpg's, when I use ffmpeg as decoder it (according to Task Manager) consumes ~1GB, while with VLC it consumes ~4.7GB.

Is this whopping difference normal/expected?

same project using VLC:

Video info (same item):

(I only have 8 GB installed, so Windows warned me about running low on RAM when using VLC, that's how I noticed.)
