Give us an auto-PIP option that enables PIP automatically when I change from a tab that is showing a video to another tab. When going back to the original tab and that video source is shown, disable it again.
When multiple video sources are available, make it so that the last viewed tab with a source is shown in the auto-PIP. It should also be possible to have multiple PIP instances open (like it is now) but the ones that are enabled manually should also be disabled manually.
automatic picture-in-picture activation
You are currently watching YouTube, but you can open the next tab and the picture in picture will open automatically. There is such a function in the Yandex browser and I would like it to be in FireFox
(Note: similar ideas have been merged into this thread)
We are planning to roll this out as a setting some time this year if it proves successful in an experiment.
Here with some good news...
This is currently being worked on so we are upgrading the status to "In development"—check out @asafko's post in this thread for more info and stay tuned for updates 😀
Awesome, can I also suggest that PiP activate when scrolling down the page (aka when video goes out of view ). The Enhancer for YouTube addon does this, and it also pops the video back into its home when you scroll back up!
