A weird thing happened and that has been ruining my studies: audio won't play on Anki. I have tried pressing R, checking on media.collection if the files were there, deleted all my addons, tried an old backup but still, sound files don't work. I would appreciate it if someone could help me out.

    A bit more info is needed. What's your Anki version? Did you install standard or alternate Anki version? Or just use Help - About - Copy Debug Info to copy it.

    As a temporary solution, maybe restart your computer to fix the audio playback. The audio should work fine for some time.

    Does Tools>Check Media report any problems?
