What is Video Popout?
'Video Popout' is an Edge extension that lets you isolate any active video from a browser tab, loading it in a separate, floating window. This window remains active across browser tabs, allowing for continuous viewing. Video Popout leverages the 'picture-in-picture' API and works in all modern browsers. To use the extension, first play a video, then click the toolbar button to make it pop out. Note: The pop-out window closes if the original tab is closed.

Video Popout is an extension that lets you easily detach the active video in a tab and load it in a small and floating popup outside of the current window.

The floating window remains active even if you change the active tab. Please note that if you close the tab that contains the video, the floating popup window will be closed as well. This addon uses the new JavaScript API called "picture-in-picture". It currently works in all modern browsers. It is important to note that, the floating window will stay on top of other windows.

Note: please play the video first and then click on the toolbar button to make it pop-out. A paused or stopped video element, will not respond to the pop-out request.

Does it as it says, just right-click your video. Works across a variety of video platforms that I've tested. *HOWEVER* is it possible to get this extension to allow pop-outs for multiple video streams at the same time? This is a feature in Firefox and it was great for F1TV watching 4-6 popped out videos at once.

Remember to refresh the page! It works the same way it does on Chrome.
