Disney Plus Volume Low On PC? 7 Proven Fixes

Disney Plus Volume Low On PC? 7 Proven Fixes

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?

Below, we’ll throw light on the possible causes of this audio issue on the app and how you can fix it with quick and easy-to-follow workarounds.

Why is Disney Plus audio so low on 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  • Outdated Windows audio drivers.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?

Adjust the Volume Settings

The first and most basic solution to fix this 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 lower sound quality. It is also possible the output sound of the video is outright poor, and the volume stays low no matter what settings you configure.

Therefore, play other movies or series and check if their 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 on PC

  • 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 volume issue on the app. 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 volume on the app 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

  • 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 this annoying problem.

Reinstall Disney Plus

  • 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.
