OnePlus fixes HD streaming on 5 and 5T, but you’ll have to mail your phone in
The Verge --------- In December, we learned that the OnePlus’s 5 and 5T phones couldn’t stream video in high-definition. The company has now fixed the problem, but there’s a catch if you want to watch Netflix or Amazon Prime: you must mail your phone back to the company to get the update installed.The phone’s inability to stream HD footage from services like Netflix and Amazon Prime stems from the device’s lack of support for Google’s Widevine Level 1 DRM, which a number of services require to stream HD video.
