Using Firefox 61.0.1 provided by Ubuntu, using Ubuntu 16.04, with a new
Firefox profile: https://shaka-player-demo.appspot.com/ redirects to
assets/angel-one/dash.mpd;lang=en-US;build=uncompiled and, after
enabling DRM and waiting for the Widevine plugin to install, fails with
a yellow bar at the top that says "The WidevineCdm plugin has crashed."
Using Firefox 61.0.1 downloaded from
US/firefox-61.0.1.tar.bz2, using Ubuntu 16.04, with a new Firefox
profile: the same steps happen but the plugin doesn't crash at the end.
This will be the last update I provide unless a maintainer responds and
asks for more information.

Firefox error: "DRM: Failed to create and initialize a MediaKeys
Status in firefox package in Ubuntu:
I get an error playing DRM-restricted content with the Firefox 56.0
that comes with Ubuntu 16.04, but not with the Firefox 56.0 that I
download from Mozilla.
Specifically, if I go to https://bitmovin.com/mpeg-dash-hls-drm-test-
player/ with the Firefox 56.0 included with Ubuntu 16.04, the video
box in the middle of the page displays static with the error message
"DRM: Failed to create and initialize a MediaKeys object". If I
instead download Firefox 56.0 from
US/firefox-56.0.tar.bz2 and extract and run that Firefox, the video
will correctly start after I click play.
In both cases Firefox is configured with:
* about:preferences > "Play DRM-controlled content" checked
* about:addons > "Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc."
v188.8.131.528 installed and set to "Always Activate"
