OnePlus's 5 and 5T phones get update to stream HD videos, but you'll need to mail it in

6 monthes ago   |   By 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 provided an update, 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.

People were understandably ticked off when they found out that their shiny OnePlus phones can't stream in HD. Both the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T were stuck streaming SD content because they lacked the necessary certifications. The company now has a program in place to resolve that, but you may not like what you have to do.
The Widevine L1 certification that is required by the major streaming services for HD video needs to be installed over a physical connection with an authenticated PC. This means there's no way to do it over the air.

6 monthes ago   |   By Android Headlines

As promised by OnePlus in December, the company's two latest flagships can now receive HD streaming capabilities for popular online video services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, but the catch in that OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T owners wanting to receive the update are required to send their devices back to the manufacturer. This solution was revealed recently by a community manager on the official OnePlus forums and appears to be the only way to fix the problem.
The OnePlus 5 and 5T flagships were shipped last year with the Widevine L3 Certificate pre-installed, which allows for SD...
