Picture in picture mode



  • I love the feature to split a tab in half. I use it all the time when i`m watching a video, but whenever i switch to another tab the video disappears (obviously). I would like a feature to "lock" one of the halfs in place, and then continue browsing in the other half. That way i can continue watching the movie even if i need to change tabs. The best solution would be an picture-in-picture like feature like on the iPad. Then whenever you launch a video in "regional-fullscreen" (fullscreen when the tab is divided), like Netflix or YouTube, you would get the option to detach the "tab" and place it in a corner. That way you can use the entire screen to browse the web, instead of loosing half of your screen area to a "locked tab". I really think this could be a killer feature, if done properly.

    Try my YouTube panel

    [ol]

    • Open the link
    • Right-click and add as a web panel
    • If it works for you, edit the source to add different videos or channels and add that as a panel instead
      [/ol]


  • Apparently Apple has already done what i meant. Any chance you can bring it to Vivaldi/cross platform?

    I am not going to watch a long video to see what you mean.

    If you mean a video window that's always on top, then I think it's unlikely to happen, at least not any time soon. The panel solution is pretty flexible.

    Open any video and add it as a panel. Remove the panel when you have finished watching it.



  • Is one minute really too much to ask?

    The video is 1 hour and 15 minutes long. You could describe the feature in a few words, or post a screen shot. It's also possible to link to a particular moment in a YouTube video,

    Why not just move the video Tab to a new window?
    Then you could resize it as required and keep it visible.
