Watch Any Video In A Floating Window On Your iPhone With VideoPane

Thanks to its true multitasking capabilities, there are quite a few Android apps which are not restricted to a definite region from the OS and ‘float’ system-wide. Apart in the Facebook Chat Heads feature that got lots of attention, a couple of very fine examples can be floating video players Super Video and Popcorn Player, that allow you to view videos in a persistent, resizable panel. You can enjoy an identical experience on iOS if your iDevice is jailbroken. Case in point: VideoPane, a new Cydia tweak by Ryan Petrich that allows you to create a floating window out of any video being played. This detachable pane can be dragged around to different parts in the screen, works on the SpringBoard, and is also even functional inside other apps, bringing a taste of real multitasking to iPhone.

VideoPane is actually unobtrusive and does not add any new buttons for detaching video windows. There are two strategies to going about while using tweak. If you intend to make use of the floating window feature for many videos, the tweak is able to be used as soon because you install it.

By defauly, VideoPane displays a notification asking users whether want to detach a youtube video, or continue viewing it in normal mode. If you need to avoid this, head to the Settings app and navigate to the VideoPane menu. Since the tweak may be developed by Ryan Petrich, it isn't surprising to see that it ties in pretty nicely with Activator. You can assign any Activator gesture to VideoPane, which makes it easy to detach a youtube video window whenever required. In the configuration menu, there's also an option to restrict the detachment to landscape mode only.

Once a video has been successfully detached from your source app, you're free to exit the app and navigate to elsewhere in the OS. The floating window has a close button, and tapping it once pauses/resumes it. If you want to switch to full-screen, hit the arrow icon located in the bottom-right corner from the pane. The window’s position might be changed simply by dragging it around. VideoPane won't display the floating window over the lock screen, the audio will continue to stream inside background.

VideoPane is available inside the BigBoss repo in the Cydia store, and expenses $1.99. If any tweak deserves your two dollars, it's VideoPane, so head straight to the jailbreak store and provides it a chance.
