Some files freeze my thumbnailer and make me have to restart it. How to solve this problem?:

So, I have noticed that some files completely break tumblerd after I open the folder they are in, new thumbnails are not generated anymore until I run killall tumblerd to restart it. I confirmed this by running lsof and seeing the tumblerd process being stuck with a certain video file.
What is the solution to this, besides not opening the folder with the problematic file?
I am running Linux Mint 18.2 XFCE.
