Please install mplayer

It's as the title says, whenever I try to play an audio anki tells me to install mplayer.
Browsing older posts it seems that mpv player works as well, which is weird since mpv is my main player.
I'm running version 2.1.22, on windows 7.
Any tips?

    Update: I tried installing the latest version, but I still get the same error.
    Please help!

    Perhaps your antivirus or firewall program is preventing Anki from running mplayer.exe, which should be in the Anki program folder.
