Image from store Always Video ᴴᴷ - Beta ( PiP Automation )
Description from store In Chrome 70, Google enabled support for Picture-in-Picture mode (PiP), allowing users to pop videos out of their tab and float on top of other things. That was awesome and good for multi-tasking. However, for native PiP: - Websites that block right-click context menu not supported (Facebook, Netflix, almost any) - Need to manually enter/exit PiP mode on a single video But with this extension, you can fully experience how PiP makes your life easier. 1. Auto create floating player when switching to other tabs/windows 2. Auto close floating player when back to the video tab 3. Prioritize multiple videos and show the one that you need 4. Support any Window applications and any modern websites (Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, etc) 5. Support media keys (play/pause & prev/next track & etc) on the keyboard 6. Since v.0.2.0, added popup for blacklisting web pages & domains 7. High-performance promise-based extension in native Javascript, very lightweight (More and more) Work on both Windows & MacOS now! Highly-recommended for desktop, laptop, tablet & especially single monitor users My idea to innovate on an extension is to avoid tedious user config or user actions to trigger the operations as much as possible. Just make it part of your browser, otherwise, you might rarely use it and uninstall soon. Please note that this extension requires permission to observe every videos in all websites.

  • (2020-01-08) Marco Bronzini: Very useful! Thank you so much, this should be integrated inside chrome by Google
  • (2020-01-06) Евгений Харьков: Не хватает интерфейса управления видео. Строка перемотки, регулировка звука и т.д. Всё супер!!!
  • (2019-12-29) Marios Pentelas: Edit: I found a problem. While using 2 displays, I am watching a video in one display using chrome, but when I click on my second monitor (running chrome as well), the video goes on PIP mode. I don't know if this is fixable but at least I can report it here. There needs to be a detection for when using chrome in anther window so it doesn't go in PIP mode then. I have thought of the concept but didn't find any extension as of summer 2019. Today, I thought that maybe someone could have made this extension and sure enough you did! It works like a charm! Thanks, this should be built in the browser if you ask me. Till then, I will enjoy your extension!
  • (2019-11-05) Itta: Yo I was thinking about how cool it would be if pip on pc was automatic like android and to find out someone has already made a script with such functionality is amazing. This is so underrated, thanks man.
