Whenever i run anki-console.exe i see the error “mpv timed out, restarting”
I have updated mpv under the Anki folder and tried multiple versions.

After a lot of fiddling around i noticed that the mpv backend was not playing sounds either, so i was tracing the calls being made and I noticed that it was loading some “Sonic Studio” driver crap.
As soon as i closed that sound started playing both in the backend of mvp and Anki!!!
