  • (2021-06-15) Luke Beckford: If you want a "Always on top" feature, just google "deskpins"
  • (2021-05-27) ING. DIEGO ALONSO GOMEZ NOVOA: Funcionaba muy bien, pero fui a usarla hoy y no funcionó, dice que los video debo verlos en YouTube, por favor solucionarlo.
  • (2021-05-16) RYOGA: 動画再生すると常にポップアップされるようにしてほしい
  • (2021-04-20) Bryn Hooper: Works really well. Does what it claims to do smoothly and intuitively.
  • (2021-03-25) Edgar Diaz: Simple and great
  • (2021-01-15) Matthew Bester: It was OK but it did not have "Always On Top" option. No response from support either.
  • (2021-01-12) reece mellor: I've been using this for a couple years now and it worked great until yesterday, now videos no longer load and nothing else has been installed how odd
  • (2020-12-13) Food Poison: Does exactly what it says without any fluff. Love it
  • (2020-11-10) Frosty Snowman: Works great as intended! FYI this extension will break 360° videos (at least for me) so keep that in mind. Took a few minutes to narrow it down to this extension.
  • (2020-08-21) Paul Collison: The icon doesn't appear when in cinema view, which I'm always in, so that sucks. Otherwise it's a fine enough extension, works well with fancy spaces in windows 10 powertools.
  • (2020-08-01) Epix Ru: Where is the button to pop out?
  • (2020-02-24) Benjamin: i have to be noobing this extension because i stilll don't see any option to pop out any of the videos i'm watching after a complete windows reboot. first time an extension hasn't had that 'plug and play' effect.
  • (2020-01-05) Séb C'est Rare: I don't think it's compatible with live streams. Which sucks
  • (2019-12-19) Ankush Nandal: not even single song plays on it, comes up with an error video unavailable every time. don't which kinds of videos are available.
  • (2019-10-29) René Sluiter: first option I tried: Video unavailable. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7EOoDl4Wri8 (Armin van Buren ASOT videocast) I guess it doesn't always work..
  • (2019-10-27) Witt.: Finally one with video controls. Very high quality.
  • (2019-10-04) Евгений Киселёв: Не работает. Не появились дополнительные кнопки
  • (2019-09-30) MsCentesimo: Es mi extensión favorita desde hace tiempo, pero hoy me ha dejado de funcionar, me dice: "Este video no existe". Me he fijado de nuevo y me pasa con determinados videos. Un ejemplo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=251&v=teyLGqLb3ac. No se cual es el problema.
  • (2019-09-11) Nikita Karatun: Awesome! Thank you so much!
  • (2019-09-03) Khan1 Khan1: its v.nice.the popped out video should be visible across all tabs.
  • (2019-07-09) Анвар Садыров: нельзя закрепить
  • (2019-06-08) Alex Trónica: Desde la última actualización a Chrome 75, ya no se puede fijar la ventana encima de todo. Probado con DeskPins, Always on Top y PinMe!
  • (2019-05-27) Ethan T.: Works great and even better with the Always on Top script. If that's why you don't like it, just download the script. It's free and safe. Google it, easy to find
  • (2019-05-23) Jordan Hoffman: Works perfectly. When I don't have another monitor handy, I have to squish multiple windows on one screen, and this extension allows me to perfectly put the youtube window in the top right quadrant of my screen. Just what I needed, thanks!
  • (2019-04-19) 爱𓆩JΛVIΣЯ𓆪ȻŁ࿐: Una lastima que por defecto no se mantiene siempre visible pero lo solucione con un pograma llamado "DeskPins"
  • (2019-04-05) Dan Roberts: Does the job! Includes video controls in the popup window, which is great. Only (very minor) issue is that I couldn't immediately see how to use it because I had a video in "cinema mode" and the popout button doesn't appear in that view but once I returned it to "default view" then it was very clear.
  • (2019-03-18) RC MH: better alternatives
  • (2019-03-14) Jason Tran: Works seamlessly to watch videos, removing clutter from chrome toolbars
  • (2019-03-12) wayan kusuma Jati: gREAT App !!! how to make it stay on top of another window?
  • (2019-03-06) Berkay Contay: çok iyi
  • (2018-11-15) FOX GREEN: Found it. How to pin video as ALways on top? How to hide all windows border?
  • (2018-11-13) Semi-Cloudy LifeEndurance: Doesn't work. It said 'Video unavailable'.
  • (2018-10-28) Doesn't work, every video shows as "Video Unavailable". Same for the similar app/extension "Floating"
  • (2018-10-27) กฤษกร สุวรรณวงษ์: ใช้ง่าย
  • (2018-10-04) Alejandro Cortés Hernández: Solo me permitió usarla unos días, después de eso el botón que aparece en la ventana de vídeo desapareció y se agregó en el menú de la parte inferior de la misma ventana un botón de "miniatura" pero no me permite visualizarlo fuera de la pagina de youtube, osea que que tengo que estar obligatoriamente navegando en youtube para ver en miniatura en vídeo, que FRAUDE mejor divido la pantalla y sale mejor, lo desinstalé e instalé varias veces y ya nunca más volvio a aparecer el botón de miniatura.
  • (2018-10-03) Lorenzo Pagliacci: Would it be possible an option to create the Window at a specified size? Like 400x300 on creation, or similar. Thanks :)
  • (2018-10-03) Suresh Dr: good
  • (2018-09-19) Lonny Alinquant: It's a Really good application perhaps we have always an issue when chrome is updated !
  • (2018-08-19) Max Hooker: Yo lo estoy usando en sincrinía con el programa "Always on top" y funciona espectacular. Sería descargar ese programita, enfocar el popout y ctrl + bar

  • (2018-11-21, v:5.1.3) Leah Francis: Always Buffering
    Good evening, Great add on by the way, but I noticed that sometimes when I have the popout going along with other streaming popouts(Twitch, Picarto) that the video keeps buffering.
  • (2018-10-03, v:5.1.3) Leah Francis: Video Unavailable
    Trying to popout a video and when the new window loads, I get a "video unavailable" message in the popout window. Help!

    Doesn't work anymore.
  • (2018-08-07, v:5.1.3) M. H.: Seems fishy...
    Why does it need Chrome right "read all your browsing history".. looks fishy.
  • (2018-07-25, v:5.1.3) Hunter Cox: Bit of a positioning issue while using Theater mode.
    Love this app and have been using it for quite awhile. Recently, I noticed that when switching a video to "Theater mode", the popout button stays attached to the upper-right corner of the video and creates a horizontal scrollbar due to the width of the element. I'm sure you've seen this or had someone else mention but just incase you hadn't, I wanted to ask if you could put this in the future todos for the extension? I imagine there's some way to watch for the "theater mode" and fire an event when that occurs and potentially change the anchor point of the popout button on top of the video player without being outside the viewport. But I'm not adept with CoffeeScript so I'm not the best choice to fork it and trying to improve it. Either way, thanks for the great extension and keep up the good work!
