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.
Hey, it works! Neat! Head’s up that it doesn’t seem to pull subtitles with it (which is fine/I don’t care all that much— I don’t think even native OS X PiP does), and it won’t install/it won’t even let you ‘Buy’ it from the App storel if Safari is open (duh), so just close and retry if oyu find that happening. Thank you so much for putting this on the App Store/pulling it from GitHub!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
