PIP Video is an useful Chrome Extension to play Youtube video in pop-up windows. This extension basically separates out Youtube video, and plays that in a separate pop-up window that always stays on top. This small window will stay on top of other windows, so you can continue watching your favorite video while doing any other work on your computer. It lets you choose from three default sizes for the docked video. You can also resize docked video by dragging its corner. The developers of this extension say that it works for most of the websites like, YouTube, Dailymotion, Nasa Tv, Amazon Video, Netflix, TED, earthcam.com, and many more. You can dock as many videos as you want.
The need to watch online videos while doing other work on your computer has been there for a long time now. And, PIP Video extension is built only to fulfill this need.
You can always use Always On Top feature of VLC Media Player to play offline videos on top of other windows.
