OnePlus 5T is once again scanner as multiple users complain that they are not able to stream HD content on select streaming services. The problem does not end here as many OnePlus 5 users also complaints about the same issue.
Multiple users took the OnePlus forum to complain about the lack of support for HD content or higher on popular streaming services Netflix, Amazon Prime Videos and Google Play Movies. For your reference, the OnePlus 5T features a 6.01-inch Full HD+ display and still it is not able to stream HD content from Netflix and Amazon Prime Videos
Many believe that the reason behind this could be the lack of support for Widevine L1 Certification, which is basically used to play HD content from Digital Rights Management (DRM) protected services. The service is used to protect the use of proprietary hardware or copyrighted content.
“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. I am massively surprised this has not been brought up in reviews/not had a bigger fuss made about as this is completely unacceptable for a brand that is now well established!” said one user. OnePlus has acknowledged this problem and the company spokesperson has said that the brand will soon fix this issue via a software update.
