Picture-in-Picture (PiP) floating video, is a great way of watching videos while you work on other things on your computer. A small resizable floating window will show the selected video in "always on top" mode on your desktop.

A drawback of PiP video is that you cannot keep on browsing on the website you applied PiP, because video reference gets lost and video stops playing. To avoid this, the extension gives you a quick fix shortcut (Alt+O) will Open a duplicate of the current active Tab, so you can let one copy for PiP video playback "reference" and the other for continue browsing. It also enables (Alt+Shift+P) shortcut in the browser for quick toggling between Play and Pause mode.

To apply PiP video, click the extension icon or press (Alt+P) shortcut while target video is playing. This extension is memory efficient due to its non-persistent background.

Shortcuts: Alt+P: Shows PiP video (last playing video). Alt+Shift+P: toggles Pause/Play. Alt+O: Opens duplicate of current active tab.
