How to Use Picture-in-Picture for YouTube on macOS Sierra

Oyetoke Tobi - Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Apple has announced it's latest OS which is macOS Sierra. macOS is shipped in with numerous and wonderful features you could ever imagined. One of the features added to macOS is the Picture-in-Picture mode that lets you watch your videos and at the same time do another thing on your Mac. 

This is just like one of the methods used in multitasking. It gives you the ability to let you use more than one app simultaneously with optimum convenience. For example, you can watch your favorite video on YouTube while using other apps simultaneously.

Now that Picture-in-Picture mode has arrived on macOS Sierra, you can now watch any video on YouTube and continue to do some thing else on another app without the need to quit or minimize the app in which you are working on. It is extremely easy to do that with YouTube videos 

So here's how to do just that

Note: YouTube’s player doesn’t officially work with PiP feature, but you can easily enable this feature for your YouTube videos on Safari with a smart method. Picture-in-Picture feature is supported only on Safari web browser. Make sure your Mac must be running on macOS Sierra, which is of course currently available as a developer beta.

Open Safari browser on your Mac running on macOS Sierra.

Then head over to YouTube.com.

So right click on the video that you want to use with the Picture-in-Picture mode.



Then a right-click context menu will appear, then right click again to show another menu.

Then click on the Enter Picture-in-Picture.



That’s all!

So enjoy watching your favorite YouTube videos in PiP mode on your Mac. You can easily dock the video in one of the four corners of your Mac screen, resize it or even lend always-on-top property to it.

So in case you would like to disable the PiP mode, just click on the tiny icon shown at the bottom of the video.
