Pop-out Video

This post is also available in: 日本語 Русский Français Español Deutsch Nederlands Српски Português Português Български 简体中文

The Pop-out Video feature, also known as Picture-in-picture (PiP), allows you to display HTML5 videos in a floating window so that you can continue watching the video while scrolling down a page or changing tabs.

To use this feature:

  1. Hover the mouse cursor over the video;
  2. Click on the pop-out video button that appears at the top edge of the video.

Alternatively, right-click on the video and select Picture-in-picture from the context menu. For certain sites, like Youtube, this is not yet possible via their custom context menu. In that case, double right-click to reveal the context menu with the Picture-in-picture option.
