Re: DSTV Now Web Picture in Picture (PiP)

Just to add for those interested and running Chrome, they do have a Picture-in-Picture extension which will allow you to run video in a window, which can be dragged and resized

I get it... was just wondering. Agreed, AOT is a "dirty" solution, but still an alternative whilst we wait for the likes of MC to listen to their customers Smiley Very Happy

Re: DSTV Now Web Picture in Picture (PiP)

  • Using an "always on top solution" is not as simple as PIP, fine for me but maybe not for others who are not necessarily power-users
  • It's not built in, PIP requires nothing other than Chrome. Even Edge is going to use Chromium sometime this year so will work in there too once implemented
  • The window in which you view is not borderless so takes more real-estate
  • It affects the position and size of the browser window when opening again

If you haven't already try PIP on Youtube, it works a treat.

It was just an idea, use it don't use it Smiley Happy

DSTV Now Web Picture in Picture (PiP)

Could the player on the web based DSTV Now be enhanced to allow Picture in Picture (PiP) viewing?
