Audio for a specific video playing through earpiece


I was browsing Instagram via their app and came across a particular video and found the audio was coming thru the earpiece of the phone as opposed to the speaker. The audio switches between the two.

I tried to play the video on Chrome and had the same result. I downloaded the video and played it on the S9's default player and then VLC and had the same result as well.

Other videos on instagram, as well as videos on youtube and my device all seem to be playing the audio through the speaker as usual.

I am very confused. Why is this happening and how do I fix it?



I am using Samsung Galaxy S9 with the latest software update.
