This extension keeps YouTube video on screen when scrolling down to the comment section
Secret feature: you can click on the icon next to the address bar to temporarily toggle the small player when reading the comments. Try it out, and let me know what you think :}
Note: Adblock products are currently known to interfere with this extension. It doesn't affect me even although I also have Adblock installed. If the extension doesn't work, you can try turning off Adblock and see if it works for you. I'm currently working on this problem.
Update Feb 21st 2017:
You can now use Adblock with this extension. Enjoy fam :}
