Summary

In Chrome 70, Google enabled support for Picture-in-Picture mode (PiP), allowing users to pop videos out of their tab and float on top of everything. That was awesome and good for multi-tasking. However, for native PiP:

  • Websites that block right-click context menu not supported (Facebook, Netflix, almost any)
  • Need to manually enter/exit PiP mode for every single video But with this extension, you can fully experience how PiP makes your life easier.
  1. Automatically enter PiP mode when switching to other tabs/windows
  2. Automatically leave PiP mode when back to the video tab
  3. Prioritize multiple videos and show the one that you need
  4. Support any Window applications and any modern websites (Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, etc)
  5. Support media keys (play/pause & prev/next track & etc) on your keyboard
  6. Since v.0.2.0, added popup config for blacklisting web pages & domains (More and more)

Work on both Windows & macOS now! Highly-recommended for desktop, laptop, and tablet users, especially those who have a single monitor

It works, unlike other extensions, but there are at least 2 bugs right now. 1) When i click anywhere on the bookmarks and above and then switch active tabs, the PIP wont open. 2) Hardware video controls (keys) and touchpad start stop doesnt work once the PIP was opened. I really like this project and would like to see these QOL improvements added.

It ISN'T Reliable!, works sometimes sometimes doesn't? like works 2/5 times. Better Improve it devs, then release the stable version. Also Beeware! it requires some nasty Permissions.
