Both the OnePlus 5 and 5T comes with support for Widevine Level 3 DRM capable of streaming SD content at best. However, while that makes for the biggest positive for the phone to have, there is one serious drawback though - its inability to run HD quality videos for streaming services like Netflix or Amazon Prime video. OnePlus 5T doesn't have the required certifications for HD streaming and the smartphone maker is at fault in this case.
According to a thread on the OnePlus forums, the issue was highlighted earlier this month.
OnePlus says that this is an issue that will be fixed with a software update in the future, but it isn't going into any detail on when that might actually arrive.

The Chinese manufacturer noticed that many users use these services and watch videos in HD. And indeed, HD video streaming is still possible on non-DRM-protected platforms such as YouTube, where some OnePlus 5T owners report that 1080p video playback is available, though only if the option has been manually selected. The following screenshot confirms L3 certification for the 5T is now a fact. Having said that, the problem stems from the lack of a certificate rather than hardware limitations, and as of this writing, it's not clear why OnePlus omitted this detail or whether it will provide a Level 1 certificate at a later date. Apparently, this issue also extends to the OnePlus 5, which was released back in June. While it got us wondering that why did the company did not include it since launching the phone.
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.
