FloatPlayer is a simple Mac app that plays a floating YouTube-video on your screen. The player is visible even on top of full-screen apps.

It's also completely open source.

Check it out on GitHub.

I don't really see the point. You can just right click on a youtube video and use picture-in-picture mode.

How is this different to Helium or Aurora on macOS?

@hellotom I had never heard of either, but I suppose it's not very different. (It is actually quite a funny coincidence that the screenshot on Helium's page also displays the video on top of Xcode viewing the apps source code.)

I love it. Will be awesome to something like this exists for Netflix/Prime. Quick suggestion. Why not provide search results within the app itself ? I'm guessing YouTube Data API v3 provides it.

That's great but I am missing two basic functions: - search on YouTube - ability to click on next video
