This extension provides a simple way to open any YouTube video (including videos embedded in other sites/pages) in a "popout" window which you can freely position and resize.


When viewing any YouTube video, whether directly YouTube, or embedded on any other website, you can either:

  • Right-click on the video and click the "Popout Player" option (at the bottom of the menu that is displayed)
  • Click the popout player icon (a square with a smaller square coming out of the top right corner), which can be found in the lower right corner of the video (by the settings and fullscreen icons)
  • Use the keyboard shortcuts (default CTRL + Up Arrow )
  • Right-click on any link/thumbnail to a YouTube video or playlist, and use the "Open Video in Popout Player" or "Open Playlist in Popout Player" menu options. This works on any website as long as the link goes to YouTube.

на 95% именно то, что я искал! Спасибо вам! Вот если бы еще и верхней "шапки" окна не было, то просто круто!

Does not work

I use it to display subtitles, a feature that the picture-in-picture extension cannot do. If you want to keep it at the top, on Windows, try PowerToys.
