Watch YouTube™ videos in the corner while browsing the site, just like in the mobile apps.
* Videos will continue to play in a picture-in-picture window when you navigate away from the page
* Re-open video page at any time without interruption
* Start videos in a picture-in-picture window with the right click menu
- Major rewrite. Improved stability, squashed or decreased most common bugs. Please continue to report -- your feedback has been very helpful.
- Your player size preference will be remembered per session so you don't have to keep clicking the expand button for every new video. Speaking of which, the large player is now a slightly more practical size.
- Addressed bug related to browser navigation for some newer versions of Chrome
** Known bugs **
This extension is a proof-of-concept and is still in beta, with a few known bugs.
- Playlists don't work correctly (Working on it)
- Autoplay is not currently supported. Trying to find a solution, but this one's tough.
- Sometimes (rarely) two videos will stack on top of each other (Please report if you see it)
- Theater mode is not currently supported
- Opening a video, clicking back, then clicking forward will occasionally cause the video to restart rather than continuing playback smoothly. Use the Reopen button at least once with the active video to avoid this issue.
If something goes wrong, opening a new video usually fixes things. If not, try opening a new tab.
If you'd like to help report bugs, I'd appreciate it very much!
