Nvidia Replay function is being turned off by Spotify (driver 487.09)

Since my replay and recording functions from Geforce experience always turned off when I open my Browser (since the driver update 487.09) I investigated this further. The browser (Opera) was not the problem, I opened Firefox which had no effect on it before, but when I opened the Spotify webplayer the overlay message popped up that my replay is turned off and I wasn't able to turn it back on until I closed Spotify. The music mafia really knows no limits when it comes to protecting copyright.

I hope this helps people who couldn't figure out why it turned off like me.

Ah that's why.

Like how iOS devices pause whatever is playing when you open Camera. 

Is it plugged in? Is it turned on? Are you sure? No, really.
