Using Firefox 61.0.1 provided by Ubuntu, using Ubuntu 16.04, with a new
Firefox profile: 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:

Bug description:
  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
  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." 
v1.4.8.1008 installed and set to "Always Activate"
