The MPRIS interface is not working in chromium (works in google-chrome from AUR just fine). Chromium seems to be registered in DBUS because when I issue "mpris-control -t Chromium toggle" it responds with "Action toggle run on Chromium" and not with "No players found" if it wasn't,

Additional info:
* Chromium 77.0.3865.90 Arch Linux

Steps to reproduce:
1. run chromium
2. go to a youtube video
3. run "playerctl play-pause"
4. nothing happens
This task depends upon
