Youtube VR jerky

Whenever I try and use Youtube VR from my 2 sensor Rift+Touch setup, the display update is severely jerky and nausea inducing!

It is not just the video, it is the entire environemnt that is jerky.

Is it something to do with Steam support or am I doing something wrong?

My Rig works perfectly well in every other app/game/experiance I have.

ASUS MoBo with I7-7700 CPU

Are you using chrome? 
I had the exact same issue using chrome + netflix in any VR enviroment. FPS would drop to about 1/3, tracking would be come awful, and it was as you said, very nausea inducing.  

I got side-tracked with other things, so I've not had the chance to test firefox.

Thanks, but I launching the YouTube VR app directly from within my Steam VR home, so do not think it is browser related.

I may be wrong though...Not sure if Steam uses a browser "Under the hood" as it were.
But in any event I only have the Microsoft Edge browser installed on my rig.
