Google Chrome: Entry Point Not Found The procedure entry point av_get_pix_fmt could not be located in the dynamic link library avutil-50.dll

I started getting this with Chrome 5.0.342.8 on Windows 7 x64:
Entry Point Not Found The procedure entry point av_get_pix_fmt could not be located in the dynamic link library avutil-50.dll


I deleted the avutil-50.dll from c:\windows and the issue went away.

me and lots of people i know started getting this problem and we found out that it had something to do with the screen saver "electric sheep" If you have it, un install it and the problem should be fixed instantly.

Hope this helps

simple renaming without restart did the same effect.

sheep still runs fine on windows xp sp3.

don't forget to uninstall old sheep versions before update.
