A future update for the 5T will enable Widevine Level 1, but did not elaborate on why it was omitted from the start. The spokesperson was unable to provide a time frame for when the update will be made available at this time.
OnePlus 5T is features with a a 6-inch, 1080p display and a powerful Snapdragon 835 processor paired with at least 6GB of RAM. These specs are enough for a smartphone to play HD videos from any source. But even the OnePlus 5T having a fast WiFi internet connection and ask for the live video streaming, the smartphone pixelate the videos but unable to play high definition videos.
