This tutorial explains how to stream YouTube, Netflix, Dailymotion, Twitch, and Vimeo videos in a floating and resizable window. It can be done while using Google Chrome browser and with the help of an extension, named ScreenOut.

ScreenOut extension pops out the currently playing video in a single click. That window remains on the top of other opened windows. After this, you can adjust the size and position of that video and perform other tasks while watching your favorite video. Even if you will close the video tab, your video will keep playing in that floating window.

Whether you are working on MS Word, Excel, reading the news, etc., multitasking can be done while watching the video. Although there is another similar extension, Floating YouTube, but it is limited to watch only YouTube videos in a floating window. ScreenOut is better than such extensions.
