Netflix and amazon prime showing black screen after update

I updated my Samsung tab s6 lite to android 12 about 2 days ago and everything seemed to go smoothly. The next day I tried use my tablet to watch a show on amazon prime and noticed within the first 10 seconds that all I got was audio and a black screen. I looked it up, troubleshot using everything Google said would work and still got nothing. After about 45 minutes I gave up and switched to netflix, only to find the exact same problem, went through the motions again of troubleshooting and getting annoyed for a further 20 minutes before giving up entirely. This only seems to be a problem on streaming apps where you have to pay for content, which is incredibly irritating because subscriptions are expensive and I don't get enough down-time to screw about trying to fix this myself. I've concluded that this must be a bug in the new update, and was wondering if anyone else was experiencing the same problem. Please fix this samsung!

Hi @Leila04 

Have you checked to see if there are any updates available for the apps you're having issues with? Go to Settings > Play Store > Account profile (top right) > Manage apps and device > Updates available.

Digital Rights Management must be broken then but I'm surprised audio plays. Did you clear the cache partition after upgrading to Android 12? Also if you haven't already done so, reinstall the affected apps

Hello - I have checked and neither of the apps have any updates available. I checked the Internet some more too and found that this is also a pretty big problem for Samsung users in India. Hopefully it gets resolved soon. Thanks for the response :smiling-face:

I have tried both clearing the cache and reinstalling the apps. Irritatingly nothing seems to work. I wouldn't mind so much if these apps were free to use but they aren't. Weirdly the playback acts the same way it does if you try to screen record the show and then play it back in your files, just a blanked out screen with audio. Thanks for the response:)
