(Steam Client) crashes on Fullscreen Video -Macbook Pro OSX 10.8.5
Hey, this has been happening all summer and it doesn't seem to have been addressed. It's still not fixed.

Whenever I browse the steam store, and start watching a teaser/trailer/clip (movie) for any game, click full screen, the browser crashes with no error codes/messages.

I don't know if this helps, but here are my computer specs:

Apple Macbook Pro 2.3 Ghz Intel Core i7 16GB Ram v.10.8.5 (OS Mtn Lion)

Steam Client:

Built Sep. 20,2013
API v012
Package Versions:1379786203 / 1379786203

Same here! i installed Steam on multiple macs (imac, macbooks...), allways the same problem! Videos wont play in Full-Screen. This problem is old and with every Steam-Update i hoped they fixed it. No luck sofar :(

Same problem. Some one in a similar thread said it was due to a Flash problem and not the fault of the Steam, but I can play fullscreen movies on the Steam website, it is only the Steam client that crashes.

Adobe broke this in a recent Flash Player Plug-in upgrade, and we're waiting on them to fix it. Sorry :\

Switch the main video platform to HTML5 and use Flash as a fallback for older systems. Seeing how this has been an issue for well over 3 Months, Adobe is never going to fix this :-/

I have the same problem too! I have Mavericks OSX (10.9.1) and I hope they fix it.. It's been bothering me a lot.

Same here, been happening for QUITE a long time. Ditch Flash if that's the problem!

Same here. Been having this problem forever. It seemed to work for one glorious moment in a build a couple of months ago, but it's been back to broken for a while.

I posted this in September, it's now March... I think Steam has forgotten about us Mac users. Come'on guys! I know Flash sucks, but it can't be that difficult of a fix, is it? It's just full screen. :-/
