Media Players stopped working entirely

Media player screen turns black and doesnt emit audio.
I can request videos or soundcloud songs and they “load” but all i can see is a black screen with a current playtime.
Soundcloud images load but dont play any audio.
Youtube videos just appear black with no audio.

Are you on a Steam beta?

Im not on steam beta, i even tried switching to beta and back but it did not fix my issue.
Restarted a couple times and its still persistent.
The media player is working but there is no audio and just a black screen.
It displays how long the video is and at which second/minute it is but it just shows a black screen and no sound.

This might not be the cause but it could be a problem with nvidia drivers.
I switched to an older graphics card (gtx 970) and the drivers on it were from last year and it somehow just worked again.

Seems to be an issue with RTX cards and their drivers.
