OnePlus 5T can't stream content from Netflix in HD - yet

The OnePlus 5T is unable to stream Netflix, Amazon Prime Video in HD The OnePlus 5 and 5T can't stream HD content from services like Netflix

OnePlus 5T would support high definition (HD) streaming after users complained about lack of support on the OnePlus forum.

"I would like to know why a £500 phone is not capable of fully utilising these very popular services and if there are any plans to rectify this clearly ridiculous issue".

A OnePlus spokesman says that a future update will add the necessary Widevine Level 1 certification to the OnePlus 5T. However, not all platforms use the Widevine DRM system to guard copyright material, YouTube is one such service that will let OnePlus users stream HD videos effortlessly.

The problem surfaced for the first time on the OnePlus forum where a user made the revelation. OnePlus 5T now supports Widevine Level 3, which supports only standard definition streams.

There are many devices in the market that do not support streaming in high resolution due to L3 security level.

While the displays of the two smartphones feature high definition resolution, they don't support the correct DRM level for HD playback. This issue isn't limited to the OnePlus 5T but also includes the OnePlus 5 - and several other phones such as the ZTE Axon 7, for that matter.

Prospective OnePlus 5T owner, who goes by the moniker "whatthefunk" has shed light on quite a serious defect found in both the OnePlus Android marquee phones.

Here's something interesting: it seems OnePlus' latest "flagship killer" is unable to stream video in HD from popular streaming services.

Scrolling though the post, it appears they are not the only one experiencing SD video streaming, with OnePlus 5 owners also reporting the same issue. More than that, it's odd how the problem didn't make the rounds earlier than this because it's been around since its predecessor, the OnePlus 5, came out, after all.

There's now no date for the software update with the fix to land, with OnePlus simply saying "we're working on it" when pushed on a release timeframe.
