What is Picture in Picture - PiP View?
'Picture in Picture - PiP View' is an Edge add-on that allows any HTML video element to be viewed in a floating, popped out window that stays on top of other web pages. This means that users can continue to browse other tabs while the video remains visible. Key features include enabling picture-in-picture mode directly from YouTube player interface and enabling this extension for iframes. A unique feature of this add-on is a script that ensures that the page stays in picture-in-picture view for 2 seconds, addressing the issue of pages that restrict the usage of the PiP feature. Compatible with Edge version >=70.

Summary

This extension brings a PiP view to all websites with an HTML video element. The extension adds a page action button to your browser. When a page has a video element, the color of this button changes. Press the button to open the active player in the Picture-in-Picture mode (PiP Mode). This extension automatically tries to use the active player.

For YouTube, the extension also offers an in-player button next to the settings button to open the YouTube video in 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.

What is the Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode: This mode lets you play any video in Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode, and it works on all platforms. PiP is a popped-out, always-on-top video player that floats on top of other windows. You can also reposition it along the screen border while you continue to surf the internet.
