OnePlus 5/5T can now stream HD content, but there's a catch

As a result, whatever "security processes" are involved preclude the use of our own computers to do the job, so OnePlus is asking customers who want the feature to be enabled to send their OnePlus 5 or 5T back in. Both phones shipped with Widevine Level 3 certification instead. Distress on the subject came to a head late previous year, and OnePlus surprisingly announced that it would add the feature in the future. The company now has a program in place to resolve that, but you may not like what you have to do.

The deficiency stems from OnePlus' failure to perform the steps required to reach the L1 security level in Google's Widevine DRM, which is required by Netflix for HD playback. But you can not install the new firmware yourself.

More than a couple of months after it was reported online, OnePlus is now eventually addressing an odd issue that was preventing HD streaming of content on OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T. However, this does not apply to OnePlus customers living outside North America, India, China and Europe.

If you're interested in getting your phone updated from OnePlus, you should contact OnePlus's customer support team to get the process started.

Teachers, staff have choice of returning to Florida school after shooting
The plan, which he said he wanted to implement within the next two weeks, covers gun laws, school safety, and mental health. Cruz was arrested shortly after the shooting and is charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder.

One of the rare shortcomings of the OnePlus 5T is that the smartphone is incapable of high-definition streaming for Netflix and Amazon Prime Video - until now.

OnePlus is assuring that the affected devices will be updated and returned back to customers "in no more than five working days" from the time they were received by the customer service team.

The process is certainly a cumbersome one, especially for users who are used to receiving all the upgrades for their smartphones through over-the-air updates.

Shortly after the OnePlus 5T began to ship late previous year, customers noticed that neither the 5 or 5T could stream Netflix in HD.
