In the macOS Catalina version, the picture-in-picture mode has finally appeared in the QuickTime Player. In addition, the function was added to the Safari browser.
How to use picture-in-picture mode in Safari?
If you often watch videos in Safari, for example, on YouTube, you can activate the picture-in-picture mode with one click. Now you can watch the video and at the same time do something else on the computer.
- You can activate the picture-in-picture mode in Safari if the website with the video is open in a separate tab or in a separate window.
- Start the video, and then right-click (or Control + click) click on the small icon in the form of a speaker and select “Picture in Picture” mode. This icon mutes the sound of the video.
- If this is the only tab open, the icon will be in the address bar.
- If you have other tabs open, the icon will be in the right edge of the tab.
- When you activate picture-in-picture mode in Safari, the video is compressed and moved to one of the corners of the screen.
- You can drag the video to another corner of the screen and resize it by pulling one of the corners. You can also pause and start the video.
- To stop the video and return to the site, click the X in the upper left corner.
- If you use picture-in-picture mode, the video window will always remain on top of all other windows. This is very convenient, because now you can not interrupt your work to watch the video.
