I have a secondary Channels DVR on my pi4 8GB....works fine, slower than my main server, thats using a i7 3.2ghz of course.
But when i enable the Samba share option, when ever i open the folders to look at or mess with the .mpg files Channels makes, it fully locks up Explorer in Win 10 and causes it to crash then restart.
It does it trying to load the file thumbnail, or if i try to open the file, or right click it, instant lock up.
I can quickly drag and drop the file to the desktop of the same computer(copying the file from the Pi to the computer) and the file is fine, no issues.
Its not specific to the computer, any Win 10 computer i have, even a just reset clean win 10 unit, it can't deal with your Samba share.
Does not affect MacOS or Linux.
Using the Channels image flashed to a usb 3.0 stick.
OS updated and so is the server to the latest pre-lease as of yesterday afternoon.
Edit: Win does not, overall, like .mpg files.....but has no issues with .ts files....i have noticed. Would be really nice to ditch .mpg, isn't it antiquated/vintage a file extension anyway? i recall them a thing in the days of .wmv and .avi? early 2000's.
EDIT: Further troubleshooting revels this is a TVE issue, and not exclusive to the Pi.
