Framebuffer extension help

Hello,

I've been looking, research, and googling this error for over 3 hours now and can't find a solution so I need some community help.

I get this error on the desktop when I first bootup and then sometimes for no apparent reason and then also when I play mp4 video using media player.

The error is

Error
EXT_framebuffer_object extension was not found

Please help brain is fried.

Thanks,
Mike

Do you have any codec packs installed? the error message seems to indicate it is looking for an extension and cant find it.



Do you have a backup from before the problem started to restore from?

Thanks Ken,

I finally figured it out last night. I reinstalled the Divx Codecs and that solved the error problem.

I have the same problem. I have no clue what a codec pack is or where I find it. I did a search on my computer and found nothing. Yet, I still get thing warning popping up, even if nothing else is open.
