You’re probably familiar with the super-handy ‘Picture-in-Picture’ feature that allows you to watch two programs at once on your TV.
Well guess what? You can do the same thing when you’re watching a video on your Mac.
If you enjoy using your Mac to watch YouTube videos you can quickly go into ‘Picture-in-Picture’ mode without ever exiting the video. Here’s how:
1 – Right-click on the video and ignore the menu that pops up.
2 – Right-click on the video again and the second menu that pops up will have a ‘Picture-in-Picture’ option on it.
If you’re watching a video on a website other than YouTube, try right-clicking the Audio icon in the Safari toolbar and selecting Picture-in-Picture.
That’s all there is to it. Now you know how to use ‘Picture-in-Picture’ to watch a video in the corner of the screen while you’re actually using your Mac for something else.
By the way, in addition to the ‘Picture-in-Picture’ feature, your Mac offers several other features, settings and tweaks you can use while you’re watching a video.
I recommend spending a minute or two just clicking around to see what’s available.
