Just go to raspi-config in the terminal and disable opengl driver there. Have fun!

Hope this works

The OpenGL driver as currently controlled by raspi-config completely breaks
accelerated video inside Kodi , omxplayer and browsers which actually use OpenMAX
to play videos. So fast "desktop" OpenGL and fast video are currently mutually exclusive.
