Steam crashes on flash streaming
Any video that plays within Steam, like the videos for games in the store, videos in Greenlight or videos added to content from youtube, make the Linux client crash here, either immediately or within a few seconds.

The client just dies, disappears from screen, leaves no process behind.

Happens both in the normal and beta clients.

Launching from terminal:

Yeah I had come across that since the original post.

While that fixes streaming store videos, other videos still crash, namely greenlight videos and user content videos.

Seems the 64 bit library is still being called in some places instead of looking in the steam plugins folder.
