OnePlus 5T unable to stream videos in HD

By : |December 12, 2017 0

A new issue regarding OnePlus 5T has surfaced on the official OnePlus forums. A member of the OnePlus forum community was the first to notice that OnePlus 5T is unable to stream content from Netflix, Amazon Prime, Google Play Movies, and other video services in high-definition despite its HD-capable display and powerful hardware.

Thanks to a different forum commentator who ran a DRM test on the OnePlus 5T, we know that the handset only supports Widevine Level 3, making it unable to stream video from select services above standard quality.

According to The Verge, the OnePlus 5T and its predecessor OnePlus 5 both lack the support of Widevine Level 1 DRM and are unable to support Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Google Play Music.

A company spokesperson told The Verge that a future update for the OnePlus 5T will enable Widevine Level 1, but did not elaborate on why it was omitted from the start. The spokesperson was unable to provide a timeframe for when the update will be made available at this time.

The OnePlus 5T sports a 6.01-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and a very powerful Snapdragon 835 processor coupled with 6GB or 8GB RAM and capable of supporting high-definition video streams.
