Not only with videos or images, but trying to run games or fullscreen applications that changes screen resolution: once resolution is changed, the explorer crashes, black screen, then reloads and you have to ALT + TAB to return to the application you were using, if not crashed too.

I also have the same issue that Windows explorer constantly crashes when transferring files, renaming or simply creating a new folder.
