Default Netflix, audio gets quiet after 20min or so

Has anyone ran into an issue where you start watching something on Netflix, audio is at normal level....then after 20 min or so the volume level just drops to a lower level and holds there?

This is on Windows 8, in IE (desktop). Pretty annoying.

Does it actually move the volume slider, or does it just get quieter without 'physically' changing the volume settings?

Hi ,as Fardringle said if it physically moves the slider bar there might be something wrong with netflix , your mouse or maybe even your desktop, but if it gets quieter by it self it may be just like that because the computer may think you are "idle".

I Hope this Helped.

Try playing Netflix in a different browser to rule that out. Try Firefox or Chrome.

Hmm, some programs like skype or steam will change the volumes of programs when there is communication going on. Windows actually does this as well if you have a default communications device that is being used.

Just a thought.
