Announcement from drashko: Enjoy your favourite videos while being productive in the same time.
Awesome Pop-up Video is a video player unlike others. It plays the video in pop-up window, floating above other applications, just like on your computer. Some even call it "Picture-in-Picture mode".

Multi-task! Why stop watching your TV show if someone sends you message, or get new email?

Why Awesome Pop-up Video is special?

When you watch video in applications like Facebook, Twitter, Vimeo, Google Chrome or standard Browser, Vine etc. you will get notification to pop-out the currently being played video or directly download the video on your device.
Combine this with "Heads Up Notifications" Xposed module or other with this feature and you will be able to pop-out videos in one tap.

Get it on Google Play

*Note: This will not work for applications that have implemented custom video player like VLC, MX Player etc.
Extra modules to enable video detecting in applications with custom video player:
Open videos in pop-up from your device or open videos from the Internet without downloading.

Also you can enter video url in the application from your favorite video site like TED, Vimeo, IMDB… and "Awesome Pop-up Video" will try to show the video in pop-up.

Download it from Google Play, it is half the size because it has binaries just for your CPU architecture, not like the attached apk in Xposed repo, which has both armv7 and x86 architectures.

Features:
• Log in with YouTube, easily access your personal playlists, more networks to come
• Playlist support + special eye candy if you have Android Lollipop
• Awesome Search - search for videos from YouTube, Vimeo or enter link to pop-out the video
• "First row" tab. One stop hub to get the trending videos around you. Saves you a click
• Chromecast™ support, currently available for external videos. Happy chromecasting.
• THEMES, customize the player colors to match your phone theme. It's Android, right?
• Hide videos, except YouTube™ videos :
• Snap to edges. When the player is near screen edge, it snaps right to it. No more trying to align the player with the edges.
• Multi Window™ ready = Maximum multitasking (only for devices that support Multi Window™)

The application has in app purchase which removes these limitations:
  • Download videos is limited to premium users*.
*Downloading YouTube videos is not supported.
I have spent many many hours to develop this mod, purchasing supports the further development of this application. Thank you.

Must have for tablets, so much white space on the websites, apps,... why not to use it?
  • Thanks to rovo89 for the awesome Xposed Framework.
  • Thanks to VLC media player for making video playback made possible. It plays any video format you throw at him.

In Downloads tab you will find special XDA version of the application.
If you like my application, please consider buying the Pro version, it keeps further development of this application. Thank you.
Let me know what do you think

And don't forget to rate and share.

I tried, but it didn't look good on some video backgrounds. maybe I will try to make different approach.

Nice Module, i really like it. Well implemented and easy to use.

I have 2 additional Questions though.

1. YouTube seems to be limited to 1080p Playback, why don't go higher? I realize the differnce is not really visible in the little Pop Up Windows, but if it's possible why not!?

2. Any way to get back to the Fullscreen Video (App), e.g. back in YouTube with some sort of a Button!?

I've noticed when I played your demo video from imdb it didn't continue playing with the screen off even though I have that selected. Sorry no debug available.

Also I can't seem to change the download location.

Purchased.

Really good app just a few suggestions
1. To hide video completly and enable only sound. For example if i wana hear a music clip but i dont want to see the video, there could be a button to switch to sound only.
2. Youtube app to work with screen off that would be amazing.
3. A button to return to the youtube app video

Thanks and keep up the good work
