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 PiPifier in Safari's Webtools 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 Webtools Menu (aA)
3. Choose Manage Extensions
4. Enable 'PiPifier'
5. Select 'PiPifier' on a website with a video

Yes it actually works!!!!

Okay, off top let me say this,” IT WORKS LIKE A CHARM’’. There was a bit of a learning curve, but it works. My suggestion is run safari for videos, put in PIP and then open chrome and run everything else. Use Safari as the base for this app to get your videos in PIP. Once the video is in PIP, swip up and then you can use any app while PIP is running. You’ll be able to use without any problem.



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!

Works great

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.
