As the title says, I tried to scan a barcode to be redirected to a video with my camera but it didn't do anything. Didn't even get a link pop-up. Anyone know how to fix this?

Go to the Galaxy Store and download or upgrade the scanning app, also check your camera settings, sometimes you have to allow it.

Slide down for quick panels and tap scan QR code would be the fastest way. If you don't see it go to the 3 dots top right and go to edit buttons and add it there

Also works if you ask Bixby to scan QR but not everyone is into bixby

in the camera settings there should be "Scan QR Code" ... make sure that is enabled and it should let you scan QR codes to open webpages and such.
