Provides simple ways to open any YouTube video or playlist in a configurable popout window


This extension provides a simple way to open any YouTube video (including videos embedded in other sites/pages) in a "popout" window which you can freely position and resize.


When viewing any YouTube video, whether directly YouTube, or embedded on any other website, you can either:
- Right-click on the video and click the "Popout Player" option (at the bottom of the menu that is displayed)
- Click the popout player icon (a square with a smaller square coming out of the top right corner), which can be found in the lower right corner of the video (by the settings and fullscreen icons)
- Use the keyboard shortcuts (default CTRL + Up Arrow )
- Right-click on any link/thumbnail to a YouTube video or playlist, and use the "Open Video in Popout Player" or "Open Playlist in Popout Player" menu options. This works on any website as long as the link goes to YouTube.

great for ultrawide and multiple monitors

Usually pop outs are so you can browse other stuff or game whiles watching a video, but the video doesn't stay on top of the screen. In other words this extension doesn't do what its meant to do. However thanks to one of the reviews i found there's a solution to this without the need of these badly executed extensions. Right clicking twice on the video you're watching, and click "picture in picture" to have to stay on top of your screen no matter what. Hope this helps.

Great extension! It works perfectly, popping out videos to their own windows. To address the "always on top" concerns, combining this window with the AutoHotKey script:

^SPACE:: Winset, AlwaysOnTop, , A

Running the script and pressing ctrl and spacebar when this window is in the foreground will keep it on top.
I prefer AutoHotKey over other programs because what it is actually doing on my computer is clear to me, but I bet that anything in this tutorial will work:

Hope this helps!

I like this extension!
Hopefully, there're some new features that can be added:
1. Add an option to remove the window title;
2. Add an option to make the Youtube app always on top.
By the way, "Use Previous Popout Player Window Size" is not very precise.

Excellent, even keeps the size and position of the window if you go into the settings. thank you!
