Netflix, Amazon Prime Video To Stream In HD

  • The OnePlus 5T is unable to stream Netflix, Amazon Prime Video in HD

"We will be adding L1 support to the OP5T and OP5", notes OnePlus after several OnePlus 5T users took to the OnePlus forum to complain about the lack of support for Widevine Level 1 DRM support on the OnePlus 5T and in turn not able to stream HD videos. However, OnePlus devices has L3 security level, which does not enable users to play videos on high resolution.

The OnePlus 5T supports the level 3 Widevine certification only, as opposed to level 1, which is required for protected HD content. Widevine Level 3 only covers standard definition streams.

The 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.

Fortunately for current or prospective owners of the OnePlus 5 and 5T handsets, the company said they are on the issue and the same will be fixed soon via a software update.

According to a thread on the OnePlus forums, the issue was highlighted earlier this month.

However, he also stressed that McGregor is only one of a few possible opponents when he ends his ring absence next year.

The Chinese manufacturer noticed that many users use these services and watch videos in HD.

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.

Unfortunately this surprising limitation also affects its predecessor, the OnePlus 5.

OnePlus, which has received an overwhelming public response to its two 2017-series flagship phones - OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T - is now again in news, but for the wrong reasons. In any case, it seems the current flagships will also be the last gen phones to ship without the Widevine Level 1 support; and that is something that all OnePlus fans can really cheer about. Until OnePlus releases a fix, the users of both the phones will have to stick with SD streaming even thought the phone sports a striking 1080p AMOLED panel.
