I am having an error message when my laptop boots saying

radeon vce init error

I would really appreciate any suggestions to help me know what it means and how should I go about fixing it? I am also attaching something that might be useful although I've no clue as to what it means. Thanks in advance.

I saw this link Here Looks like it is a duplicate answer. Looks harmless according to the author. Maybe install proprietary drivers?
