Provides simple ways to open any YouTube video or playlist in a configurable popout window

Image from store YouTube Popout Player
Description from store Overview This extension provides a simple way to open any YouTube video (including videos embedded in other sites/pages) in a "popout" window which you can freely position and resize. Usage When viewing any YouTube video, whether directly YouTube, or embedded on any other website, you can either: - Right-click on the video and click the "Popout Player" option (at the bottom of the menu that is displayed) - Click the popout player icon (a square with a smaller square coming out of the top right corner), which can be found in the lower right corner of the video (by the settings and fullscreen icons) - Use the keyboard shortcuts (default CTRL + Up Arrow ) - Right-click on any link/thumbnail to a YouTube video or playlist, and use the "Open Video in Popout Player" or "Open Playlist in Popout Player" menu options. This works on any website as long as the link goes to YouTube.

  • (2023-03-18) Fabrice Denis: Great extension. PROS - can remember and restore window position and size - can loop vide - can reuse existing popout when selecting another video COUPLE SUGGESTIONS 1) It would be fantastic - but may not be possible - to remove the window chrome. Specifically, the titlebar. I always find the window titlebar ugly and distracting Especially on a dark wallpaper, it's bright and looks bad on top of the video. The next best thing would be if it was possible somehow to force a dark titlebar so it's not as visible. 2) An option to disable Youtube History for whatever plays in the popout would be really good too. I routinely clean up my history to get better suggestions and going on a music binge is always a hassle. This would help a lot.
  • (2022-11-14) Ethan Dale: Combined with Windows PowerToys "Always On Top," this extension is amazing!
  • (2022-09-18) Tobias: 10/10 perfect Does what is says, no nonsense, you can even close the original youtube tab.
  • (2022-08-31) Yassin Hisham: Literally useless, it dosen't stay on top outside chrome. Don't download it just a waste of time.
  • (2022-08-24) James McGowan: There is no always on top option. Literally useless.
  • (2022-07-12) Harshal Phadtare: why did they build if it get in background after shifting another tab useless
  • (2022-06-12) Opdeit: Is fine but have not found "On top" function
  • (2022-04-08) Oscar Ibrahim: great for ultrawide and multiple monitors
  • (2022-03-08) Krullest: Usually pop outs are so you can browse other stuff or game whiles watching a video, but the video doesn't stay on top of the screen. In other words this extension doesn't do what its meant to do. However thanks to one of the reviews i found there's a solution to this without the need of these badly executed extensions. Right clicking twice on the video you're watching, and click "picture in picture" to have to stay on top of your screen no matter what. Hope this helps.
  • (2021-12-13) Nick G: Great extension! It works perfectly, popping out videos to their own windows. To address the "always on top" concerns, combining this window with the AutoHotKey script: ^SPACE:: Winset, AlwaysOnTop, , A Running the script and pressing ctrl and spacebar when this window is in the foreground will keep it on top. I prefer AutoHotKey over other programs because what it is actually doing on my computer is clear to me, but I bet that anything in this tutorial will work: https://www.itechtics.com/10-tools-to-always-on-top-any-app-in-windows-10/?unapproved=311213&moderation-hash=7c659af0092fa68ad92fb5f147c680e5#comment-311213 Hope this helps!
  • (2021-12-08) Pbice: I like this extension! Hopefully, there're some new features that can be added: 1. Add an option to remove the window title; 2. Add an option to make the Youtube app always on top. By the way, "Use Previous Popout Player Window Size" is not very precise.
  • (2021-11-25) Dex Flexa: Excellent, even keeps the size and position of the window if you go into the settings. thank you!
  • (2021-11-23) Robert N. Adams: I wanted it to pop out YouTube videos, it pops out YouTube videos. I wish it had an "Always on Top" option, but it's not a dealbreaker for me; I recommend combining it with an app-pinning program such as DeskPins for best effect.
  • (2021-09-27) Tuck Vison: Doesn't have always on top
  • (2021-09-25) Oscar: Could you please add the possibility to stay on top of all windows? It now kind of destroys the experience.
  • (2021-08-21) Jaakko Aaltonen: Your site says that only if the video is blocked from embedding by the creator you would get the not available-error. Any video on watch later doesn't work, even if the video would otherwise work just fine. This is like 99% of how I use youtube, add videos to my watch later and then watch them from there, so this extension is useles.
  • (2021-08-20) stix n' stuff: Doesn't work tells me to watch the video on youtube
  • (2021-08-19) Justin Force: I love it! I wrote and published Popout for YouTube on the Chrome Store just over 10 years ago, and I've always kind of wished it was pretty much this with control bar button and context menu shortcut, but never got around to reworking it. It's even got a great key binding! Nice. I'm going to use this instead of my own extension, I think. Thank you for the fine work.
  • (2021-08-16) It works nicely and does exactly what it says it does; nothing more, nothing less.
  • (2021-08-02) Puteri Zahraaa: It does what it says, beautifully. But it should always be on the top of others, we need it to be pop-out its because we want to browsing other site/page while watching the video.
  • (2021-07-14) GrinzzIthalamule: Just what I wanted, thanks.
  • (2021-06-23) Erik Peterson: This extension worked perfectly for about a month, but it looks like Youtube is now blocking it. Any fixes pending?
  • (2021-02-12) Chris B: Works. But any time you close ANY Chrome tab, the pop out player closes as well.
  • (2020-12-29) FNAF PIZZA FAN: It work's just not in a good way Im trying to do a tutorial and when I click the application the popout goes behind it
  • (2020-12-02) Mathijs Alkemade: This works great and is nicely intergraded into YouTube with the button.
  • (2020-10-27) R: Just a normal window, NOT ON TOP!! There is a reason they don't have screenshots.
  • (2020-10-22) Elijah L: Does not work
  • (2020-09-02) node9: It's an okay extension. It would be better if the window would stay on top. If you wanna use this ext. you can use an application like TurboTop to keep the window on top. Something I did notice while using that is neat is the fact the ext. remembers the size and location of the window after going into fullscreen mode.
  • (2020-08-30) Roderick Khan: Does exactly what it says, pops youtube videos into its own window.
  • (2020-06-23) Bo C.: Does what it says! Works really well. I don't know why there are so many negative reviews. People complaining like they're paying for a software suite or something smh
  • (2020-04-15) Marcel Barlik: This extension only opens the video in a new window. I was looking more for something as great as the inbuilt opera window popout for any sort of video player (not only youtube - worked for pretty much any player like twitch, mixer, youtube...). The window that the extensions opens, still has borders which is quite anoying and bulky as it takes up precious space. Additionally, when shift click and dragging to resize, the video doesn't keep it's parameters and therefore creates black bars either on top & bottom or the sides. There is no buttons overlay, as of for e.g. close popout and open original video and continue playing sort of button like in the opera popout. I was also quite unsatisfied as it is not always on top, and there is no easy way to toggle this. 1/5 for me as it's quite useless.
  • (2020-04-06) Jim Ramsay: Does exactly what it says. It easily pops out the current youtube video into its own separate window. Note: If you want it on top of everything, you'll have to tell Windows or your Window Manager to keep it on top. It's a separate window.
  • (2020-03-30) T.E. Valentine: It works, the video pops out into its own window, but if it can't stay on top what exactly is it any use for?
  • (2020-03-24) David Šmíd: It does what it says, perfect! I only wish it could remember the window position each time. I popup youtube videos to the second monitor and I have to move them there all the time. Otherwise - great!
  • (2020-03-18) mattia gentile: Oooooo, finalmente una App che oltre a fare il Pip riesce ad ingrandire la finestra video a piacere potendo sfruttare al meglio i nuovi schermi panoramici con un uso a multifinestra... Grazie!!!!!
  • (2020-02-06) the sus: Isn't all that bad. Controls are CTRL (either one), and up arrow at the same time. It's a simple program, it offers the basic feature that it said it'd do. So it's not all that bad, you get what you wanted. It's very bare bones though, and I wish it had some basic features. Here's what it really needs to be real good: -Borderless window option -Always infront option (always in front of every other window on pc for multi-tasking) -Control binds to loop, pause maybe -way to look/play other videos after Those options being added would be amazing, and would make this extension just perfect (for my needs at least). With all that being said, it's nice to have your video playing, without any of the clunkyness when you have other windows open. It does what it said it does, but you may desire more functionality to it.
  • (2019-09-08) Ricardo Kutz: App does not work. The Ctrl Up arrow shortcut only pops up the extension settings. There is no pop out feature at ALL> Piece of garbage app
  • (2019-05-09) midge: i mean it works lol
  • (2019-04-29) Ahmet Erhan ARIK: It works, it has some nice settings... What more can I write? It does the job! Thanks!
  • (2019-03-18) RC MH: nicely integrated and keeps the videos name in the header
  • (2018-07-26) blue: Advantage: Icon is so tidy. Disadvantage: (1) Icon is slightly bigger than the other icons that are in youtube player originally. (2) There's an address bar in the popout window which makes it bigger.
  • (2018-07-09) Hooray: DOESN"T WORK AT ALL.
  • (2018-06-25) Y-tec: ищу расширение,-что бы не было сверху рамки и ссылки,т е чистенькое окошко-только видео-желательно вообще без рамок-подобно как это сделанно в опере по дефолту..плиз допилите
  • (2018-06-01) Greg Toomey: No always on top
  • (2018-05-16) safurzia: SO BAD!
  • (2018-04-27) Эдуард Мухаметзянов: Не 5 звёзд, потому что не закрепляет, как и все другие, впрочем, расширения подобного плана, на какой-либо странице сайта и вообще окна Windows. Для закрепления использую приложение Desk Pins.
  • (2017-09-01) Huseyinekrem: Usefull for powerless devides like atom laptops. Put video to a new window and close heavy full youtube page. Still, this should be new tab, instead of window.

    Your site says that only if the video is blocked from embedding by the creator you would get the not available-error. Every video on watch later also doesn't work even if the video would otherwise work just fine.
  • (2021-01-02, v:3.1.1) Dan Harbor: Playlist feature is buggy
    I have a massive playlist of 400+ videos of extended music (15min-10h). When trying to use the popout, the playlist bugs out and not only opens the first video in the list instead of the one I'm viewing, but the popout list resets to 1/0.

We would be willing to donate funds for this project.

    Hi. Nice job. I suggest that you should remove URL address form popup windows. It's spoils the look.
