Shiny Picture in Picture enables picture in picture mode on almost any video website.
The PiP mode means that the video continues playing in the always-on-top floating video player. You can switch to another tab.
Please note: the original tab with the video player should remain open.
You can activate the app from:

Start a video in the tab > Browser toolbar > 🧩 Puzzle button > Shiny Picture in picture icon
On major platforms (such as Youtube), you can find a "Picture in picture" control inside the video player.

Risk impact

Shiny Picture in picture requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Shiny Picture in picture if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Shiny Picture in picture is very likely to contain malware and should not be trusted. Avoid installing.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
