Video Pop-out



  • 0_1517390386450_2018-01-31.png

    Possibility to pop-out video to be top of the other webpages (ala Opera, Maxthon).



  • Additional image of feature, displaying that a video window can also be at the top of different windows.

  • Chrome is working on support for this, behind the chrome://flags/#enable-picture-in-picture flag. This should (hopefully) make it easier for vivaldi devs to implement.

    A workaround for now is to add a video as a web panel.



  • I hope vivaldi can implement this.



  • @lonm It's still broken also on canary (chr66) but the fun fact is...
    while vivaldi 1.15 show a black window with OS buttons named "PIP video" - canary show a rectangular control-less shape =D
    PIP addons are a nice workaround, but I hate how they hide controls - especially extensions and back/forward buttons.



  • As of earlier last week, the WICG have drafted a proper proposal to make Picture-in-picture support a standard part of the web. IT's still a draft as of now, but it's interesting to see it developing:

  • This solution would be also interesting for every page : a pop-out from a link to get a useful basic preview.



  • @seasonly It would be nice. But it needs to be implemented at a website level. Most browsers could do this already to some extent with a javascript popup.

    For videos it's a bit trickier, as you only want to pop-out the video element itself (and without interruption), but have it still be tied to the page, which requires a browser level implementation.

    I guess it would be interesting if you could "pop-out" an arbitrary page element.

    Surely, it would be funny !
    I don't understand why it is so hard to have this, for me it's just a new window with a page opened inside, and for the video pop-out specialy, we delete all the element of the page (as adbrowser does) just keeping the element.
