I have 5.1 audio with my windows but Spotify only uses the 2 front speakers, how do I get it to use ALL of the speakers?

 

Speaker fill makes NO DIFFERENCE!

Hey @feijudas 

 

Spotify doesn't support 5.1 out of box, like most other programs it outputs stereo audio.

However there are a few different methods on how to make Spotify play audio on 5.1.

 

Voicemeeter is one way to get it work - see this post on how to use it.

 

Another user also made it work by adding a specific line with quotation marks to spotify startup icon:

 

 

--disable-audio-output-resampler

 

 

as seen here:

Let me know how you get on 🙂
