Maybe the image url of the QR Code can be scraped from the HTML Source ?
As a workaround for now.

It’s a known bug with whatsapp and chrome.

You need to disable Hardware acceleration from your chrome.
Settings - Advanced - System - Use hardware acceleration when available OFF

Just tried worked for me.

Somehow --disable-gpu wont work.
I think you will need to add a registry key. I found this on google you could try it :

Hold down the Windows Key and press “R” to bring up the Run window.

Type “regedit“, then press “Enter” to bring up the Registry Editor.

Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Policies \ Google \ Chrome
Note: You may have to create the “Google” and “Chrome” folders.

Right-click “Chrome” and select “New” > “DWORD 32-bit value“

Give the value a name of “HardwareAccelerationModeEnabled“.

Set the value data to “0” to disable Hardware Acceleration.
Set it to “1” to enable it.
