Whoah, you're right about that! If I have the Steam in small mode and fullscreen a video, then Alt Tab out, it plays smoothly as my desktop background. Super strange; I tried updated Flash For Other Browsers but that didn't help.

How's that now? I checked for updates and it says none available, but video is still choppy. Version 1.2

Nothing to do with Steam Community, so this moves to the Help and Tips area.

Talking Status: Confirmed

Confirmed: The latest beta version of steam does fix the choppy video problem. Steam menu - Settings - Account Tab - Beta Participation Area - Change button - Select steam beta from the dropdown box. For anybody who needs instructions on how to participate in the beta version.

Thanks for the fix.
