sound is delayed when playing audio's Avatar

Hello, today I updated Anki from 2.1.15 to 2.1.26 and I've noticed that sound is delayed when playing audio and it depends on CPU frequency (i5 8250U) at 3.4 ghz is ok but at 1.7 adds like a second or two but at 800mhz is even slower before update everything was fast. I've noticed that mplayer process is restarted and closed at each time the sound is played and those restarts add delay. Can you make mplayer process not be killed each time, it's extremely inefficient to restart it . Mplayer alone is almost 30MB app in older version of anki mplayer stayed in memory

    mplayer had various bugs when used in long-running mode. We may be able to move back to mpv in the future which would mean not having to start a new process each time.
