Audio plays once and never again until restart

So I’ve got this strange problem with AwesomeTTS where I have a note which plays on-the-fly and once it’s played the first request, be it in the preset manager, the preview button in the browser, while studying, editing, no matter where, it stops playing audio altogether until I restart anki. Seems to be a problem with mpv itself but I’ve uninstalled it so it reverts to mplayer and this didn’t change anything. Maybe I’m missing a dependency? Currently running Manjaro x64.

Sound manager shows anki still having the file open but the sound has of course already played (these are just short words, no sentences).
Thanks for the help!
