Icon for Picture in Picture (video in floating window)
Seasonly last edited by Seasonly
In order for users to know that this video pop-outing exists natively into Vivaldi, the function should be put into foreground for easier and quicker access. Fews know that double-clicking over videos makes to appear browser context-menu. Please add an icon, shown when mouse hovers, that launches pop-out directly and why not a right-click over it could call the browser video context menu.
And more basic features about Picture in Picture into this About pop out videos functionnality

Another option would be to give a button that appears to the right of the address bar every time a video can be viewed with PiP (similar to how we are already offered a reader view button for tabs where it is useful).
Something similar can already be done with the following extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/picture-in-picture-extens/hkgfoiooedgoejojocmhlaklaeopbecg
But this can't be for a page with several videos.

@Seasonly @Al-tair I myself have never encountered a page where there was more than one video in display, so a button on the address bar would suffice for me. Then again this is Vivaldi and there doesn't have to be one single way of implementing where the popup button should appear; options is what's so great about this browser.

I hope this icon, too. And I think it is better that this is this feature's button like Opera.
Opera's PiP Button↓↓
This feature can add to Vivaldi by UserScript Extension. I tried this. I could do PiP button showed on the top of video.
And When I used this userscript, I could do PiP on Netflix!

When I open a video in Youtube and active the subtitle (close caption) this is not appear in PiP, why?
See the picture, the video with black screen with the subtitle and the PiP with the video without subtitle.
@versuri The default implementation of PiP applies to just the raw media element - in this case the video stream. For the subtitles to show up as well, youtube would need to do further development to support it.
@versuri There's a feature request asking just that: https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/31820/subtitles-in-picture-in-picture
Might consider voting for it.
@LonM There might be something else to do yes. However, Opera's implementation of PiP does support subtitles, so it doesn't look like the burden is all on Youtube's side...

just copy this function from the CentBrowser, and it will be perfect.
i use it for a long time and it's the best example among all browsers
It's a light improvment for floating video. If you're interested, please upvote the first message.
