How to activate the picture-in-picture mode in iOS on any site




Picture-in-Picture mode, debuted at last year’s WWDC conference, was a really important and useful innovation, which, if not brought multitasking to iOS to a new level, then at least advanced it forward. Unfortunately, the scope of this function is extremely limited and often does not allow using it by default on all sites. This is where the extensions for Safari come to.

The free extension of Pipifier allows you to activate the picture-in-picture mode on all sites built on HTML5. And since today the vast majority of developers create their own web pages taking into account the peculiarities of this platform, there are obviously no problems with using Pipifier. In any case, YouTube and other legal and not too videohostings have long ago abandoned Adobe’s work in favor of a more modern markup language HTML5.

In order to be able to activate the picture-in-picture mode as desired, download the Pipifier from the App Store , and then start the extension by clicking on the icon that appears on the desktop. Because Pipifier is just an extension, its interface does not have any control element, but is represented by a standard instruction for further installation.

Launch the Safari browser, then open the Share tab;
Scroll through the list of available actions to the very end and select the “More” tab;
Open it and, having discovered Pipifier, activate it by moving the corresponding toggle switch to the “on” mode;
Open any video hosting and, having activated a mode “a picture in a picture”, bravely curtail a web browser and be engaged in other tasks.
