Introducing “YouTube Mini Player” Play Videos On A Small Screen On The Desktop Version

What is a “YouTube Mini Player”?

YouTube Mini Player is a reduced version player that displays the video being played in the browser in a small size at the bottom right of the window and allows you to play it as is or perform basic operations such as stop and move to the next song.

To display the Mini Player, you need to click “Activate Mini Player” to the right of “Settings” from the operation icons aligned at the bottom right of the video screen.

Unfortunately there is no “keyboard shortcut”.

Click the part without the operation button or bar on the “Mini Player” screen to return to the original video playback page. Click the “X” in the upper right to end the “mini player”.

Of course, you can also perform operations such as “pause / play” and “next”.

How to picture in picture in Chrome

Then shortly after that explanation, “Picture in Picture” was added as a new feature to the Google Chrome browser. You can use this function to open the playing YouTube video in a new window.

It is easy to do.

  • Play your favorite YouTube video on Google Chrome.
  • Right click on the playing YouTube video twice in a row.

* The first time the YouTube black menu is opened and the second time the Google Chrome context menu is opened.

  • Select “Picture in Picture” from the context menu

This will open a small separate window and the video screen will move and play.

When you move the cursor over the “Picture in Picture” screen, the “Pause” icon is displayed in the center and the “X” mark is displayed in the upper right. Click on each of them to perform the “Pause” and “Close” operations.

“Close” will return the video playback to the original YouTube screen.

This Picture-in-Picture window can be moved separately from the original YouTube page by dragging it, and can be resized by dragging the four sides or corners of the window.

In addition, it is “always on top” so you can move it to the corner of the screen and “watch while” without hiding under other windows.

On the other hand, closing the original YouTube page also closes the “Picture in Picture” window.

Either way, it’s much more usable than a “mini player”, so if you’re using Google Chrome, give it a try.

Exit the YouTube Mini Player

To exit the mini player, click the X button at the top right of the mini player or press the Esc key on your keyboard. You can return to the video playback page by clicking outside of the mini player’s title or controls.

Mini player plays in the foreground from the browser

When you play Game and YouTube at the same time. The game screen is only on the left side of the browser, so if the video plays on the right side, you can collect items faster!

So we will use the YouTube picture in picture to show the mini player.

The mini player was always in the foreground, even with the browser showing YouTube in the background.

YouTube Mini Player Can Move

It’s hard to see if the video is playing on the right side of the monitor screen.

The mini player can be moved by dragging. Move it to a position where you can easily view it and play the video.

YouTube Mini Player Can Be Resized

However, this makes the playback screen too small to understand what is being played. You can resize the window by dragging the edge of the mini player screen.

It is the same as resizing a browser. However, the size of the playback screen appears to be limited and will not be larger than I expected.

However, it can be sized to display as a mini player.

If you want to skip the video time, use the YouTube screen

If you want to skip the video time, please use YouTube screen. All you have to do with the mini player is play, stop and close with the x button.

If you want to skip the video time, you can operate it from the control bar on the original YouTube video.

If auto play is on, the next video will play on the mini player.

If you don’t want it to play automatically, turn it off.

The ad will also play, but you cannot skip it.

If you want to skip it, please do so from YouTube screen.

Enjoy YouTube With a Mini Player!

I often work while playing music on YouTube in the background, but working while watching YouTube videos is fun.

But I don’t want to get distracted by the video and get in the way of my work.

If you want to repeat monotonous work, such as playing a computer game, I highly recommend the method of putting a mini player with picture in picture on YouTube.

The method is the same as YouTube, right-clicking on the playback screen will display “Picture in Picture”.

Please try it.
