The server "X" does not have a valid connection for casting. Check that the server is claimed

Hello all. I just downloaded Plex, as I'm evaluating the product. It finished scanning my music, and when I try to cast to a Chromecast device, it will display the following error:

"The server "X" does not have a valid connection for casting. Check that the server is claimed in server settings"

Where X is the name of my computer with Plex installed. I'm not sure what does this mean, but I haven't been able to use Plex at all. I've been searching for this issue to no avail.

The PC has Windows 10 with Plex version 3.20.8. Thanks in advance.

    I'm having the same issue. No luck at all searching for an answer in the FAQ's.
