YouTube Pop Out Video / General Feedback

  • I recently migrated from Chrome to Opera and wanted to share some feedback.

    Some of the features that I immediately noticed and loved were: the ability to mute tabs, tab previews when hovering, native Adblock, and condensed URL in the address bar.

    The Pop Out Video Player is also one of my favorites. Where it falls short, and what I'd like to see different is that the window always defaults a little small, is typically in the way (close to the middle of the screen), and is difficult to resize (specifically, it takes a lot of accuracy with the mouse to resize the window... almost as if the borders that can be grabbed are a little too small.) I would also like to see the ability to temporarily minimize the Pop Out video when browsing in another tab... Maybe it could minimize to a smaller icon within the browser. I also wish that the videos were restored to my previous size and position with each new browsing session. As of now I have to reposition and resize the window every time I reopen the browser. The ability to have the video easily snap to corners of the screen would be nice, as many sites have different layouts, and content in different areas of the screen.

    A few other general suggestions/features that I would like to see implemented in Opera is the use of TAB search much like Chrome. I don't have any problem with quick searches (ie. "y+space" defaults to yahoo search) but where Opera falls short is the fact that new search engines must be added manually, where Chrome picks up on sites you've searched within in the past. The next one is a nitpick, but I would like to see more room for customization within the UI (ability to remove Synchronization button, Start Page, the Block Ads button, the word "Menu" on the menu, and the ability to make the UI a little smaller... where it would take up as little room if not less than Chrome with the Bookmarks Bar in place.

    If you’ve made it this far, thanks for reading. Sorry if I’m being this guy right now:

  • Now, that's some nice feedback out there 🙂 While I passed the pop out part further, I'm still thinking about the feasibility of the second part…
    oh well, I'll forward it too anyways. Thanks 🙂

    You can test with this.

    That site uses Flash and video pop-out works only with html5.

    Anyway, your issue is unrelated to this topic's subject, not to mention that this is too old.
