Picture in Picture supports the video player on various platforms and sites. This mode allows you to watch videos in a floating window so you can keep track of what you are watching while interacting with other sites or applications.

Open the YouTube video on the mini-player in floating image-in-picture (PiP) mode. This window will play videos on all pages of the browser.

How Picture in Picture works:

  • Find the video and run it.
  • Select the “Floating Picture in Picture” (PiP) mode, and you're done.

There is one thing worth noting: while you can freely browse other sites while playing a video in a pop-up window, you should keep the original tab open. Floating picture-in-picture is a powerful tool for watching videos on a mini-video player for all sites.

The Picture in Picture floating panel is a lightweight addon that gives you access to videos on the entire site with one click. A floating panel for all is an extension that is developed and maintained independently. A floating panel for everyone simply makes it easier to access PiP videos for all video sites.

Floating Picture in Picture (PiP) for YouTube™ respects your privacy.

If you move the mouse over it, it gets blurry, you can't go full-screen with a double-click, and to close it you have to press the Esc key...
