Bring YouTube Mobile App’s In-Page Playback Option to Desktop Version

One of the most useful features in the YouTube mobile app is in-page playback option, which lets you search the site while continuing to watch a video. You can bring the same feature to the desktop version of YouTube, so you can watch video, read comments or search site while video is playing.

Seek ‘n’ play is a Chrome add-on that brings YouTube mobile app’s in-page playback option to desktop version of YouTube. As in the mobile app, the video keeps playing in a small window when you click back to your search results or look for something else. This add-on brings the same feature to your computer.

Installation Instruction: 

Install the add-on Seek ‘n’ play from Chrome Web Store. Once installed, restart your browser. Go to YouTube, play a video and just start searching for something else.The playing video will shrink down to the bottom right corner of your screen automatically.

You can change the video playing position from its option menu. To do so, go to chrome://extensions and click Seek ‘n’ play’s option and select your choice. Now, to restore the in-page playback to normal, just click the ‘enlarge’ icon. To close the video, just click the close icon.

What is cool with this add-on is, the video will continue to play while you're sent back to the YouTube page, where you can look through the page, check your feed, look through a search list, or do just about anything else in the app while it continues to play.
