not always, I think it may depend on the file size. As if Xnview is trying to process it and then it cannot be deleted.

XnView has been good at releasing files
If you have the preview p[em and the video is in it the file stays locked. C Licking n something else will release the file. If it stays locked and this is a continuing problem, install lock hunter or unlocker which will unlock the file when you need it
