    It seems the S7 Edge can't handle playing YouTube videos in HD. Anything 1080p and higher it lags and stalls playing the video but you hear the sound. Does anyone else have this issue or tried it? My Note 5 works like a champ. And this is a fresh install.

    I shouldn't have to save it to make a video play okay. Other phones work fine in the past. Something is definitely not right....

    Okay, so I uninstalled the youtube updates and using the one that came on the phone and it works fine. Any ideas why that would work?

    I tried that and it didn't help me. Still get some stuttering after a minute when I set YouTube videos to 1440p.

    Not sure if this applies to anyone here, but my T-Mobile s7 edge had binge on turned on out of the box. It makes no sense since I'm on an unlimited plan, but my YouTube videos played like they should after I turned it off.

    This issue needs a patch. Lag is more pronounced for some than others. In an age where Netflix is streamed over 4G these days, lag is inexcusable. Samsung needs to take testing seriously. Great engineers putting out a product but need to test a little more.

    It makes plenty of sense for t-mobile. Also turned it off and have no issues.

    Try creating a short cut from browser for you Tube and using that instead. See if that helps. I have had nothing but trouble with Google play and you tube. Turning router to ipv4 only is the most given answer. If it is happening over data I can not help as I have had no issues with data. My only other success has been with a vpn app.It helps on the home wifi that is causing my problem. I don't have trouble any where else so far.

    Makes plenty of sense. Binge reports that you're on high speed internet - then switches you to lower speed. That speed difference is what gets reported as lag, and you see it as the phone doing nothing, waiting for more video to come down the lower speed pipe.

    Great advertising idea, but cutting your head off is NOT a great cure for a headache.

    Did anyone else experiencing lag turn off "Annotations and in-video notifications" on the YouTube desktop site settings? I turned it back on and it may have fixed the issue, although the issue was somewhat sporadic before so it could be coincidence.

    I'm on the ATT S7 Edge and I've noticed the "stuttering" when I'm streaming at 1440p. Audio continues but the video can hang up at times.

    I made a video of my lag.


    I kind of found a work around tho for mine.

    Right when I open the app and choose a 1440p video I have to go in to the little gear option thingy and change it to 1440p. From here the video gets choppy and lags but if i go to another video and YouTube saves my 1440p selection and it automatically starts the video at 1440p where I don't have to go in and change it the video has no lag.

    Someone let me know if it is the same for you.

    I noticed same thing on first week , but i found that high gfx themes eat up lots of display/video memory so the video stutters alot , if you have a theme from samsung or any launchers try to disable them and check you ram usage ,i hope this should help.
    After having some normal theme my phone working great with 2k content.
