Conversion failed. A required codec could not be found or failed to install.

Hi, general question.

This christmas I got an ATV4.
Installed the Plex app. And since my own server is down at the moment i went towards a friends shared content.

I could play some things just fine but quite often I got just an error after some time saying:
"Conversion failed. A required codec could not be found or failed to install."

So I went on using my Iphone 6 with IOS 10 on it, and that worked fine.

Today I upgraded to an Iphone X, and when I tried to watch same thing as I did on the Iphone 6, I got the same error as on the ATV4
"Conversion failed. A required codec could not be found or failed to install."

So the general question is
is there a bug of some sort or is it just so, that on new devices you cant't watch same things as you could before?

    No one that knows?
    If there is another topic about this perhaps someone can direct me there.
