I'm not sure if anyone is suffering from this but running the latest amazon app would only show a black screen, I could hear the audio and navigate around the app but just a black screen.

If you download this version, it's fine. Also turn off auto-update via wifi in Play Store.

I have the same issue with youtubetv. Wonder if there is a different version that works.

The issues are coming from the fact that the CarDongle can't natively handle DRM content from the device to your head unit display. The APKs that are being used to display video are essentially outdated or hacked which is another thing to be nervous about when signing into a video service with your credentials. Unless you can find modded APKs the updates and clean APKs will not show video.

I posted this as a different thread on this forum and was directed here:

I’ve been using my CD on my Volkswagen Tiguan. I got it all set up using Mirroid and did the OTA firmware update. Everything works when tested on Mirroid both when hotspotting off my phone or connecting to my home wifi. However, when I get into the car Disney Plus and Amazon Prime video both show a black screen but still play audio. Subs show as well. I tried several different Disney Plus APKs going back 2 versions too but nothing makes a difference. Annoyingly when I plug the CD back into Mirroid the picture comes up. It’s just in the car that it doesn’t seem to work. Can anyone help?

If the comment above RE: natively handling DRM content is correct then how come I'm able to use DisneyPlus and Amazon Prime on Mirroroid? If CD can't play that content then it wouldn't work on any device but that's clearly not the case.

The only caveat to this is there's just been and OTA update so I'm doing that while typing this. I'll retest after the update and post the results on here.

Brief addendum to my previous post, I read on this post:

That a low dpi apk might work so I'm trying a low dpi version of Disney+ and will report back soon

@Tommy so I ran some tests today. Looks like the same issue is happening. When connected to Mirroid all apps run just fine but when connected to the car (VW Tiguan) Disney+ and Amazon Prime play audio and subtitles but no picture, black screen only. The low dpi apk made no difference at all either.

These seem to be the only two apps affected, ALL other apps work fine. Some examples of working apps: Youtube, Netflix, Real Debrid, CinemaHD, BBC iPlayer, SmartersIPTV and many more.

Please let me know if there's something else I can do/test, thanks

@fetunchandrapatel We will need to add custom support for streaming apps other than netflix.

No Tommy, the issue is Android system contains the Flag_Secure. Unless you plan to deodex and decompile each apk and provide a patched apk that breaks when the latest update releases you will need to focus on that.

I was actually in the process of fixing this for you guys before you uploaded bad firmware that bricked my device and then basically told me to get bent when I asked for replacement or refund 😉

@CarDongle_Enthusiast you went ballistic everywhere and on other social media channels.

I confirmed that that firmware wouldn't brick the device. Even if it had, we were working with everyone to find a solution.

All you had to do is ask for an address to send the unit back to us, and we would have re-shipped a new unit out to you. We even pushed you to the front of the queue as well. Oh, well, let bygones be bygones. We will have to add custom support in-house it looks like.
