  • (2021-05-11) Ric Sanches: It works well and has 3 size settings Problem: It resets to full size everytime you change browser location or download bar appears, I either have to close or cclick buttons everytime to get rid of it, so I am disabling it for now..
  • (2021-04-05) Hussain Patwary: Love the idea but it never saves the screen settings. Pin should be permanent.

  • (2020-08-06) Sarah AW: I personally love this extension because I love to read comments while watching videos! however, I like to watch korean videos with english subtitles on CC feature and I see the the extension does not add CC along with the floating video. I wish to have them getting updated soon! thank you.
  • (2020-07-01) Jason B: Exactly what I was looking for, thank you!
  • (2020-06-24) Chathindu Nethmina: Thanks for this great extension. I was used to read comments while watching the video on mobile, but wasn't able to do that in PC, So this plugin is very useful. I have a suggestion : When i click those links like 14:05 in comments, can you please make it apply to the floating window so it don't get scrolled up to the original video.
  • (2020-03-23) Michael Chavez: I would love love love if I could somehow MOVE the comments all the way to the LEFT so that I could make the video bigger. OTherwise, a great extension

  • (2020-01-05) xS. ᓚᘏᗢ: If i could make love to an extension and have it's babies, it's this one. 10 out of 5 stars.
  • (2019-10-25) Angel Gimenez: Would be nice that the player had an Always on Top option and not dissapear as you change the focus to another tab or just aplications, games, etc. That's where the five stars are. Useful and clean anyway
  • (2019-10-05) F M: very useful and easy to get aquainted
  • (2019-09-05) Ramzi: This is a great tool, but it CONSTANTLY stops working. I have to remove and reinstall it to work again. Devs, would love this to be fixed. Would be a 5-star tool. Edit: Thank you for the reply. I wish I was notified! This tool stopped working again, randomly. It works great most of the time, but I can't pinpoint why or when it stops working.
  • (2019-08-10) Md. Fariq Khir: Using for years. I hope there will be an update that can display captions.

  • (2018-12-10) Md Rashadul Hasan: Very useful!!!!!

  • (2018-10-28) Bilikgame: A note for those who also use disable autoplay plugins - put Youtube in whitelist. I have a bit of a problem that stops the video anytime I scroll up/down, but it turns out to be due to other plugins.
  • (2018-10-19) Sebastian Smarslik: Wow, das hätte ich schon vor Jahren finden sollen!
  • (2018-10-18) The extension is great! Can we have it working outside Youtube and maybe outside Chrome window?

  • (2018-07-27, v:1.2.26) Jon Murdock: does not work anymore
    I'm not sure if I just have some other extensions that are messing with it or not. It could be that after Youtube updated their layout that it caused it to stop working.. I miss my mini player when I scroll down :(
  • (2018-06-03, v:1.2.26) Petrus Artropian: lock option
    Please add an option to lock the player so that it is not moveable. And of course an option to unlock it again :) Great plugin so far, nothing to complain about. Greetings
  • (2018-05-29, v:1.2.26) Faun471: Subtitles
    Add subtitles!
  • (2018-05-20, v:1.2.26) 1DS18CS040: Doesn't work anymore.
    It's not working for me anymore. Everytime i scroll to the comments the youtube player just stops plus the mini y player doesn't show up.
  • (2018-04-25, v:1.2.25) Dave T: Video pauses when I scroll down
    I have the extension on a Macbook and an older Win10 laptop and it works fine. Tried on a new HP Elitebook x360 and when I scroll down the video pauses. I have to click the floating frame to resume. Tried uninstall/reinstall, etc. with no joy.
  • (2018-02-26, v:1.2.25) Joci Ketrue: ALWAYS FLOATING
    It would be great if videos keep running while using another tab or windows!
  • (2018-01-12, v:1.2.25) Oliver Baum: Timecodes
    I'd love it if this extension could prevent the default youtube behaviour of jumping to the top when a timecode is clicked. Since we can already see the video when we click the timecode, the scrolling to the top behaviour is unnecessary.
  • (2017-11-17, v:1.2.25) Vladimir Kuksenko: 400. That’s an error.
    "Your client has issued a malformed or illegal request. That’s all we know." Shows up all the time when this extension is enabled. Stops showing up as soon as I disable it. Maybe its an interaction with another extension, or maybe this extension is buggy.
  • (2017-08-16, v:1.2.25) Nutrollio Nutz: Needs Update
    Needs updated for the new Magic Actions for Youtube extension.TY
  • (2017-03-24, v:1.2.25) Michelle Ng: subtitles + volume control!!
    it would be great to have subtitle options and volume control!! otherwise great extension :)
