OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 Supplemental Update 1.0
Info from Download page:
"OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 Supplemental Update 1.0 (1.8 MB)
The OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 Supplemental Update fixes a video driver issue that may prevent your Mac from starting up when running certain apps that capture video.

System Requirements: OS X 10.10.3 Build 14D131"

FYI to Nvidia Graphics Driver Users on Update Required:
This updates the OS X build number to 14D136 (thanks Bill) so users of Nvidia's web graphics drivers need another update.
  As of this April 17th, I've not seen a download web page posted yet but Ray sent a direct link to a 346.01.02f02 driver update for this OS X 10.10.3 build. (Should be available via Nvidia prefs panel if you previously installed Nvidia's web drivers.)
