This extension brings a PiP view to all websites that have HTML video element. The extension adds a page action button to your browser. When a page has a video element, this button changes color. By pressing the button, the player that is active is opened in the Picture-in-Picture mode. This extension automatically tries to move the active player to the PiP mode. If there is no active player, then it selects from the list of inactive players.
For YouTube, the extension also offers an in-player button which is added next to the settings button to open the YouTube video in the picture-in-picture mode. You can use this extension to watch YouTube videos in a floating window that is on top of all other windows so tabs can be switched and still the player is visible. The floating window has play and pause buttons and you can exit from the picture-in-picture mode anytime.
