I am unable to play any type of media on a Linux machine running Fedora 27. I receive a shaka4011 (Manifest) error.

Fedora: 27
Plex Media Server:
Firefox: 57.0.1
Chromium 62.0.3202.89

Can someone help me resolve this?

    I'm having the same issue, I just installed Fedora 27. Plex Media Server, and Chromium Version 62.0.3202.89 and Firefox 57.0.1 both generated this playback error.

    SOLVED: In Chromium settings, I was offered the chance to update the Codec and Digital Rights. I clicked on both, restarted, and the error is gone. I suspect that a recent Chromium update did not automatically update those and Plex Player needed them. Good luck!

    @beninator I'm not sure where you see the ability to update Chromium, but I don't see it. Regardless, I want to be able to use Firefox. I'm frustrated that no one from Plex has offered any guidance into what this error means and how to resolve it.
