My Question or Issue

I've noticed when connected to my car via bluetooth (no android auto), the video part of any podcast will not load. The audio will work, but it seems the video doesn't even attempt to load. This happens both when podcasts are downloaded and not downloaded so it can't be an internet issue. I'm unsure if this is intentional or not by Spotify, but messing around in the settings I could not find anything either. Hope there's an easy fix somewhere, thanks!

It happens to me using Samsung S10 connected to car audio via bluetooth or usb (android auto).  Is this a feature to make sure people aren't watching video while driving or a glitch?  Either way, passengers also want to watch video.  There should be at least a warning or something, not just black screen.  I pay for this feature and want it to work.  I get the safety concerns, but if I can disable bluetooth and watch it, it should work via usb.  Please let me know if anyone has a fix for this.
