You can watch Disney Plus on computers, tablets, phones, smart TVs, game consoles, and even Apple TV devices. But what about Discord?

Discord is a talk and audio platform that people use to converse while playing games through a shared platform.


Can You Stream Disney Plus On Discord?

Yes, you can stream Disney Plus through Discord. However, perhaps the more apt question is – should you? It is illegal to stream Disney Plus through Discord. For that matter, it is illegal to do this with any streaming service through Discord.

With that being said, if you still want to learn how to stream Disney Plus on Discord, we have a method on how to do just that.


Streaming Disney Plus On Discord

It is possible for you to share your screen on Discord and stream Disney+ so that the rest of the members of your server can watch the same thing that you are watching.

However, Discord cannot detect this streaming service on your own, so you’ll need to add it as a video source and then as a game.

To do this, you will first need to download the Discord app. You cannot do this with the web browser edition of Discord.

The app has the ‘Go Live’ feature, which is what you need to stream Disney+ to your fellow members.



Disable Hardware Acceleration

Now you need to disable the hardware acceleration to prevent any issues from arising, such as streaming a black screen instead of the video.

This can be done by finding your ‘Settings’ on your chosen browser, navigating to ‘Advanced Settings’, then ‘System’. Disable the hardware acceleration from here.

This might vary slightly from browser to browser. For example, to disable hardware acceleration on Google Chrome, you’ll need to click on the three dots in the top right corner of your browser, head to settings.

Disable Hardware Acceleration

Click the drop-down arrow next to ‘Advanced’ and click on ‘System’. You can now toggle the ‘Use Hardware Acceleration When Available’ option to disable it.



Configure Discord For Disney Plus

Now that you have successfully disabled hardware acceleration, you should be able to stream Disney+ without any issues arising.

To do this, first go to the Disney+ website on your browser. Log into your account and select what you want to stream on Discord. This can be a film or a television show.

Now open the Discord app and go to ‘User Settings’. This can be found next to your username in the bottom left corner of the screen.

Find the ‘Activity Status’ tab underneath the settings menu and click on it to open the page. You should be able to see an ‘Add’ button. Click on this.

First off, streaming Disney Plus is illegal through Discord, as the service is meant to be paid for by its watchers. Nonetheless, we hope that you have learned some insightful information about streaming through Discord from our article.
