Description from store ——————————————————— This extension will no longer be updated. Thank you for using "Floating Player"! Google Chrome 70 already has native Picture-in-Picture, so you don't need an extension anymore! Just create a new bookmark and add this code as URL: javascript:document.getElementsByTagName('video')[0].requestPictureInPicture(); ——————————————————— Source code and bug tracker are available at https://github.com/gabrielbarros/floating-player ——————————————————— Floating Player is a lightweight extension that lets you watch YouTube™ and Twitch videos while you browse the internet. How to open a popup? • Open the video page • Click the extension icon on the top right corner of Chrome —————————————————— READ THIS: - If you want the classic popup back, go to the options page and uncheck "use native picture in picture". - Most options don't work for native picture in picture. - You need to install Deskpins if you prefer the classic popup. —————————————————— Works with YouTube™, Twitch.tv and many others. —————————————————— Changelog https://raw.githubusercontent.com/gabrielbarros/floating-player/master/CHANGELOG

  • (2022-01-21) Tim Wang: This is by far the best floating player for youtube I have used. No sure why it stopped poping up as usual when I click to toolbar icon recently. It can still work properly if I click the miniplayer first, then click floating player. It will pop up floating as usual.

  • (2022-01-14) IIPon3II ignore posts bfore 2017: Works good, I haven't came across ant issues!! Im so glad something like this exists Edit: as of 1/9/22 the extension doesn't work until you refresh the page (when you click it from youtube the 1st time it doesn't work until you refresh [even queues]) Edit: 1/13/22 I am saddened to say that the new google chrome update now has this (well on mine it does) Though I have not tested this with other sites than youtube so its still good for twitch and others!!

  • (2021-11-30) Juni: It actually works! autoplay works great with it too. havent tried playlists but if autoplay works, playlists works

  • (2021-09-04) Daniel Wang: As another person said, really good job making this .
  • (2021-08-23) Sérgio Kucera: Perfeito! Já deveria ser função nativa do Google Chrome!
  • (2021-08-22) MATHEUS GOMES INACIO: Funcionou perfeitamente

  • (2021-07-15) Blaine Craner: Works perfectly! Furthermore, it ALSO works with other similar websites, like Twitch! This is SO good for a multitasker like me. Thank you!
  • (2021-07-06) N u n o m i: works ty
  • (2021-06-28) SpaceXplorer: This tool is exactly what I needed. I had switched to Opera for this, but I missed Chrome so much because of the way it looks. So I installed this extension, and it works as good as that! In fact, I'm using it right now while writing this review, and I love this extension. Just a couple of things missing though: one can only pause the video from the pop-up and nothing else. At least the video progress bar is a necessity for this extension, and I hope to see it in any future updates. Other than that, this is all you could've wished for in a picture-in-picture extension: lossless audio and video, support for pause and play, can be played even with Chrome minimized, and just about everything else.
  • (2021-06-26) Lucy Sacre: literally just what u want. this simple thing has impressed me widely. i am amazed in its utilisation applications. more people should get this extension. works on many sites too.
  • (2021-06-16) Paula Resende: Não abre
  • (2021-06-11) Raphael Sávio: Muito util e funciona bem, super simples de usar. Recomendo pro desenvolvedor que adicione a opção de avançar o video no player que hoje nao esta disponível. Temos que retornar na pagina do youtube pra avançar o video.
  • (2021-05-06) deividt: cade o botao de baxar
  • (2021-05-04) good kind: Good work! But It auto rotates the video so that it opens the Portrait video as Landscape on some video sites. i.e. https://mixch.tv/ I hope I can switch it back to Portrait.
  • (2021-04-11) STASZEK Staszkowski: 5/5 Program działa prawidłowo. Jak dla mnie super przydatny Polecam
  • (2021-04-01) Spacellary: Works great for Twitch!
  • (2021-03-22) Clarisse Joy Angela Villegas: Does its job, i just wish the subtitles would still work when its on small screen. I couldnt read subtitles to the anime im watching which are basically all i watch so its not that beneficial for me
  • (2021-03-07) Best Of the Best: Неплохая альтернатива Floating Video, но с урезанным функционалом. Твёрдая 4-ка
  • (2021-03-04) Noah Roth: For anyone switching from a browser with built in Picture-in-Picture features, this is the extension to get. It works exactly like the PiP function for Firefox, and I have so far not encountered any issues. Well coded.
  • (2021-03-04) André Lira: O único que funcionou perfeitamente pra mim!
  • (2021-02-27) Josep Forniés: Muy útil, funciona perfectamente
  • (2021-02-22) Alfons AMG: Thank you. Its useful for me.
  • (2021-02-18) a.: woahh!!!! THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER!!!! i recommend :) - you can resize the video - very functional - you only need to click the extension then the video will play in picture - can pause and unpause the video
  • (2021-02-15) Silviu Kiraly: love it
  • (2021-02-15) HARIGOVIND C B: Great it even popups web page
  • (2021-02-14) Aquele Pedro: Muito bom, mas ele continua resetando o tamanho depois que eu aumento, aleatoriamente.

    add always on top feature otherwise useless
  • (2018-03-04, v:3.0) Bernard Gilbert: Question about YouTube TV
    Will this app let me use YouTube's TV service on my desktop computer. I have it installed on my LG Tribute using Android 6.0 but I get a lot of buffering, so I was hoping to also use it on my desktop. I'm using Windows 10 and Chrome browser.
  • (2018-02-12, v: Felipe Bezerra: Assistir mais tarde
    Amigo a playlist assistir mais tarde nao carregam junto, igual as outras playlists Seria legal se pudesse trazer a playlist, pois dai eu colocaria tudo dentro do assistir mais tarde e depois só usar o floating para deixar rodando os videos.
  • (2018-02-10, v:2.0.36) help
    Doesn't work for me since 2.0.35 update :( chrome show me error in this line " objUrl.searchParams.append('floating_player', '1');" Im using Advanced Chrome Custom Build.
  • (2018-02-07, v:2.0.34) Gerry Murphy: Additional CSS for BBC iPayer
    I'd really like to see some additional CSS injected into the Floating Player when used on the BBC iPlayer site (https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/). Namely to hide the top navigation in the floating window: header#orb-banner { display: none !important; } div.ipNav { display: none !important; } Any chance of getting this in a future version? Failing that does Floating Player reveal itself somehow so that when I can detect it and inject such css via Tampermonkey?
  • (2018-01-29, v:2.0.34) Loui Rajabi: Always on top
    It would be great if there was an option to keep the floating window always on top.
  • (2018-01-29, v:2.0.34) Yashiro Nanakase: Barra superior

  • (2018-01-18, v:2.0.34) Rifan: Is it posible in Fuji.TV Live for video pop up?
    in that site, all web page will be opened in pop up, not only video, but at least your extension is the best for now in that site. the link is https://fujitv.live/fujitv
  • (2018-01-09, v:2.0.34) Eric Clausing: Make it work with Firefox please
    I love your extension. It is such a great extension. I recently started testing out Firefox Quantum and the only thing holding me back is this extension. Have you considered making this for Firefox also? None of the extensions out for Firefox come even close to yours.
