Helpful Extension!

Works as advertized. It is helpful to easily locate the button in the extension bar of Safari rather than digging in the video settings for it.

A feature that I'd find useful is additional playback controls (rewind, fast-forward, or scrubbing). When I'm refrencing a video and taking notes, I do a lot of pausing and rewinding and have to change tabs, rewind, press play, and re-enable picture in pciture to keep working.

Works great - for Netflix wait before clicking!

At first I thought it didn’t work with Netflix, but then i let my movie play for awhile…not sure how long, maybe 10-15 minutes or so.. and i happened to click the button again and it worked! Watched a second movie and the same thing..didn’t work at first.. let it play for a bit.. then clicked again and it worked. After it works, it works excellently. I bought the dev “a tea” as offered for their services.

Great little Safari add-on. Support it by buying Speedifier, too!

Just came in to say while I really appreciate PiPifier, Speedifier is even more incredible. Instead of buying the developer a tea (or on top of, if you’re generous), buy his other app to support him. Watching Netflix at 1.25x-2x the speed is genius.

Both these apps combined have changed the way I’ve been watching over the past couple days. I would put this up there with Alfred and Better Touch Tool as essential Mac apps.
