Media Player on Windows keeps crashing during skip forward.

I'm running Plex Media Player Version 3.35.2 on Windows 10 64-bit. The computer has a i5-2540M with 16GB RAM. The server is Version 1.11.3.4803 running on Ubuntu 16.04 with 14 vCPUs on a E5-2650 with 4GB RAM. I'm streaming over the internet with a 10Mbps upload and transcoding set to 720p 4Mbps.
The problem I'm having is that the media player often crashes when doing multiple 30 second skips ahead to skip commercials in recorded TV. It seems to happen most often using the shift + right arrow combo, although I'm pretty sure it's happened with clicking the button as well. How do we get it to stop crashing?
