How to Stream Disney Plus on Discord?

To be able to stream Disney plus shows on Discord, we are going to use a simple trick that you might have already used before if you are a gamer and an active Discord user.

Basically, if you use Discord while gaming, you already know there is an inbuilt feature to stream any game with friends in the Discord servers. This is the same feature that is used to set a custom playing status on Discord. We are going to use the same trick but not to stream a game or set any status but to stream a particular window where our Disney plus show is streaming.

But one thing you need to know here is that you can only stream up to 720p video quality with this method. That is perfectly fine, I mean most of us still watch videos and content on 720p resolution on our mobile devices.

In case you want to stream on a higher resolution, you can give try the Nitro subscription package. But I don’t think so you’ll need that. 720p resolution seems to be an awesome video resolution to watch shows on mobile/desktop devices.

Also, it’s not just about Disney plus shows, but you can stream any platform, any video by using this trick. The method is the same, you just need to open your desired platform in the window that is being streamed on Discord, that’s it.
