In just a client all the videos play okay but laggy...

Is it buffering the video? jerky playback? does it lock up? More information required. Steam’s client uses a different method to display the videos (flash) so that can be excluded.

In windowed client:
Jerky playback, but I can play the whole trailer with sound.

In Big Picture mode:
Playback is smooth! but a trailer starts and then I see this: 'error occured during playback'

I'm not sure I'm getting the same thing or not but I get rather jerky playback from the into animation in Big Screen Mode including sound stuttering. See my thread here, which includes system info, a video of the effect and Steam output (it's actually for another bug I have in BSM where it freezes until you tab out and back again).

I get this same issue. It's pretty inconsistent (not the same point in the video every time), and I've only been able to reproduce it with the videos for Chivalry: Modern Warfare. It happened several times in a row, then I tried Air Buccaneers and Borderlands 2 and the videos on those both worked. Then I went back to Chivalry and its video works too. Then I tried some more and it started failing again.

I'm using 64-bit Ubuntu 12.10, Nvidia GT640, GNOME 3, two monitors, 16 GB of memory, an i5 processor.

Here's stdout/stderr. Let me know if there's anything else that would help you track this down.
