Whatsapp calls stop video playback in all browsers

I have cleared the cache, factory reset the phone... I have used multiple browsers (Samsung Internet, Google, Duck Duck Go) all downloaded from the play store. When I am in a call on WhatsApp I simply cannot watch any videos. After hanging up everything works as normal. I'm guessing there is a glitch in the call permissions stopping all video playback. When trying to start a video during a call, the video will load, I click play, the video jumps 1 frame. if I do this consecutively there is a split second of audio too. Always stopping never playing the video. WhatsApp is surely the culprit.

I used to watch movies on browser while video-call on whatsapp. Since 2 last update on android 12 my samsung s21+ suddenly can't do these task at the same time. 

I tried with samsung flip4 it works fine (can do both task at the same time). Even i tried on my friends phone Xiaomi with same OS (android 12) and also works fine (can do both task video call while watch videos on browser).

Now i upgraded my android to 13 the problem still exist. However, when i use whatsapp call/video call, and try to open video on browser, i muted the video and refresh the page, the video is playing. When i unmute it, the problem start again unless i mute and reload the page again.

 

Please fix it Samsung!!

The idiocy of the first responders "intuition" can be ignored. It seems to be a new problem with whatsapp and I have switched to telegram.

I have the same problem. 

My experience shows that this is a sneaky problem with meta applications. 

If you are in a WhatsApp call you can play videos on Instagram but on all other applications you cannot. This is sick and I don't like it.

 

Such cooperations as meta have no morals...

Nevertheless I think android and Samsung should find a solution for this!
