Hello, let me explain:
Before It would pop out a copy of the video, keeping the original web page playing as well. In UX it was better because sometimes I would like to check some small details in the video and I had to just one click on the tab to open it. The bigger video was there; and after checking things like this I would just click in another tab to keep doing what I was doing without the need to pop the video out again. It was there already;
Picture in Picture don't memorize the last position and size for other tabs and it it quite annoying. Only for the current video, which is kind of useless since we only open a video once. To have to move and resize it every time for a new video is kind of annoyingly unnecessary;
Some videos, like Twitch.tv, the pop up button appears at the begining of the video and just disapear. I have to reload the page to make it apear again and click it before it is gone;
Being able to click in any part of the video to pause it was kind of nice. Like youtube, etc. It's an usual experience. To have to click only in the play/pause button is worst than before. Not the worst thing to be fair, but for the UX I feel it was more fluid before, no constraints, you know?
The good thing about this new version:
- The "Back to Tab" button is more then welcome! I missed it so much before. It works perfectly for this new proposal, but if you guys get my words above in consideration would be great if this button doesn't close the pop up as well, since duplicated video is a feature.
I wrote this because pop out video was the feature killer to make stay in opera instead other browsers. There is a lot of other small things as well, be for my daily basis I use it a lot. My hope is to have at least an option to get the way it was. Thank you for your time.
