PiPifier is an Action extension for Safari that lets you use every HTML5 (thats about every web video on iOS) video in Picture in Picture mode.
If you have an HTML5 video playing on any website like Youtube just press Run PiPifier in Safari's Share Menu to enable Picture-In-Picture for this video.
With this extension you can even run PiP mode on sites that hide the native video controls (so that you can not enable PiP there)
1. Open Safari
2. Open the Share Menu
3. Choose More
4. Enable 'Run PiPifier'
5. Select 'Run PiPifier' on a website with a video
Ratings and Reviews
This app is so easy! You literally just hit “Run Pipifier” and the video instantly minimizes to a floating window. It’s so quick, instant!
I thought that the link would launch in the app and I’d just have to wait for the video to be streamed in the app, but no. It just seems to grab the video and instantly put it in a window. Wish I knew about this sooner!
Thanks for the response from the dev! I figured that there are actually two “more” buttons in safari... the correct one sits in the last row and is pushed out of screen by other buttons. I have to swipe that row all the way to the right to reveal that button.
Developer Response ,
Have you followed the instructions the app gives you? You need to add enable Run PiPifier in the Safari Share Menu.
If you stille have issues feel free to contact me through the app.
Simple and easy to use! The one problem I have is that if an ad plays during the video the PiP goes black and stops. This is a little annoying but it’s not a hassle to rePiP the video after the ad is over. Overall I love it.
