System Recordins Playback no longer works

This is happening on both of my 2 systems and to several others as we have been talking/trying to figure out what is going on over at the PIAF forms…

System Recordings will no longer playback correctly when the play button is pressed - only as it is streamed to the browser - if you access the file directly and play it - it is fine.

this happens both with custom recordings, and the stock sound clips.

Suggestions please?
