Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge and Adobe Flash Player

"I think this is a known issue, but Galaxy S7 and S7 edges (mine is ATT) aren't playing YouTube at 1080p 60fps or 720p 60fps. I try the same videos on my Nexus 5X and 6P with no trouble. Do you know when this will be updated? I don't wanna root my device. Thanks!"

"Recently bought a Galaxy S7 and am having trouble finding the Youtube and native music player icons in my app drawer. The ate installed and both open, but i can't put icons on my home screen. Any help is appreciated, thanks."

Has anyone else noticed that some videos from YouTube are playing back choppy or skipping? And not necessarily the audio portion, just the video portion?

I don't know what it is but it happens every single time watching some MKBHD videos, and haven't noticed with other videos. My first initial thought would be the codec being used to play the video back, but I know YouTube (I think) is using the same codec compression across their entire site to play videos.
