Do you want to watch The Mandalorian or any other show on Disney Plus, but the volume gets low on your PC and interrupts your viewing experience?
If Disney Plus volume is low on your PC, this happens when the Volume control settings are misconfigured, or the audio drivers are outdated. To fix this, slide up the volume bar from the PC system tray or try updating the audio drivers through the “Device Properties” menu.
In this article, we’ll explore why the Disney Plus volume is low on PC and how you can fix this problem with quick workarounds.
Why is Disney Plus audio so low on PC?
Below are some of the reasons why the Disney Plus volume is low on your PC:
- The loudness equalization option is disabled.
- You have enabled Dolby Atmos settings on your PC.
- Volume settings are set to low.
- Slow internet speed.
- Poor Wi-Fi signal strength.
- Original audio quality is low by default for specific shows and movies.
- Outdated Windows audio drivers.
- Disney Plus system or installation files are corrupt.
Is there a way to turn up the volume on Disney Plus on PC?
To fix and turn up the Disney Plus low volume on your PC, try these tried and tested solution that has helped many users quickly resolve the issue.
Adjust the Volume Settings
The first and most basic solution to fix the Disney Plus volume low issue is to adjust the audio settings on your PC or the app itself.
To do this, click the “Volume” icon within the app or the system tray on the PC desktop, drag the slider to the desired audio level, and see if this fixes the issue.
Try Watching Another Content
Disney Plus content from the early 2000s or 1900s, like Return of the Jedi, may have the original audio quality in a low volume. It is also possible the output quality of the video is outright poor, and the volume stays low or unclear no matter what settings you configure.
Therefore, play other movies or series and check if their audio output is better without any noticeable drop in volume. If this doesn’t work, you can increase the audio level by investing in an external sound system with amplification.
NOTE: Unfortunately, there is no solution for volume issues related to content.
Disable Spatial Audio
Disney Plus supports 5.1 surround sound and Dolby Atmos audio format to give the viewers a “movie-like” experience.
However, if your Windows does not support Dolby Atmos, you may face a low-volume issue, especially when watching high-action scenes on Disney Plus.
Since the Disney Plus app does not have any option to turn off the sound format, try disabling Spatial Audio on your PC with these steps:
- Go to PC “Settings.”
- Click “System.”
- Select “Sound.”
- Click “Related Settings.”
- Click “Sound Control Panel.”
- Choose “Device.”
- Choose “Properties.”
- Disable “Spatial Audio.”
Now, open the Disney Plus app on your PC and stream some content to verify the fix.
Enable Loudness Equalization
Some users report enabling the loudness equalization on PC also helped them resolve the low volume issue on Disney Plus. Here’s how:
- Open “Settings.”
- Go to “System.”
- Select “Sound” and click “Device Properties” under the Output section.
- Click “Additional Device Properties.”
- Open the “Enhancements” tab.
- Checkmark “Loudness Equalization.”
- Apply these changes and stream Disney Plus to see if this fixes the problem.
Resolve Internet Issues
Disney Plus requires 5 Mbps internet speed for streaming HD and 25 Mbps for 4k content. However, if your connection faces lags due to network congestion, outdated router firmware, or bandwidth limit, the Disney Plus volume can drop.
Therefore, visit an internet speed-checking website using a browser and test your download and upload speed. If the results are below the minimum requirements, restart your router or modem to refresh the connection.
If this fails, disconnect all the unnecessary devices connected to your internet or use a wired connection to reduce network congestion.
Another solution is to log into the router web panel, find the “Update” or “Firmware” option under Advanced Settings, and update the firmware to the latest version. If none of these fixes helps, contact your ISP and upgrade your internet plan with more bandwidth.
NOTE: Slow internet speed can also lead to Disney Plus lagging on TV or other streaming devices.
Update the PC Audio Drivers
PC audio drivers communicate with various sound output devices installed on your PC. If the drivers are outdated, you may experience low volume while playing Disney Plus content with high-quality audio.
To quickly fix this, update your computer audio drivers in the following way.
- Press “Win+X.” (keyboard)
- Click “Device Manager.”
- Click “Audio Inputs and Outputs.”
- Right-click the audio driver.
- Select “Update Driver.”
- Click “Search Automatically For Drivers.”
- Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the audio driver update process.
Afterward, launch Disney Plus and try watching something to see if the volume is still low. If yes, update your Windows firmware with these steps:
- Open “Settings.”
- Click “Update and Security.”
- Click “Check for Updates” and wait for your Windows to search for new updates and install them.
- Finally, restart your PC, which should fix the Disney Plus low volume.
Reinstall Disney Plus
If all else fails, reinstall the Disney Plus app on your PC to remove any corrupt system installation files causing the low volume and install a fresh copy. To do this:
- Open “Settings.”
- Click “Apps.”
- Click “Apps & Features.”
- Select “Disney Plus.”
- Click “Uninstall.”
- Click “Uninstall” again to confirm.
- Next, open “Microsoft Store.”
- Search for “Disney Plus.”
- Click “Install.”
After reinstalling the Disney Plus app on your PC, the content will hopefully stream with a better audio output.
