Description from store There's no easy way to explain this, nor would you ever need this feature. But we could be wrong. If you've ever wanted to play YouTube videos in the background and control them on any tab or window then this is the extension for you. The extension places a launch icon on all YouTube videos (Excludes Embedded videos) Clicking the launch icon will continue the video in the background. You can't see the video, only hear it. This is ideal for Music and Rambling videos. To control the video playing in the background click the launcher icon on the toolbar in the top right. You can play/pause the video there as well as skip back and forth through the video using the timeline at the bottom. Want to continue watching the video on YouTube? Click the videos title on the launcher, it will open a new tab and resume the video where you left off. If you need help, you can find us on Twitter https://twitter.com/ilkotech
