Just a feature request. I am by no means an app developer so I do not know what it would take, but Picture in Picture mode would be awesome if the Emby app could make use of it.  :)

He doesn't mean the IPTV PiP where you watch 2 channels at the same time

He meant the new Oreo PiP mode where you watch a video in a small window on top of other apps

see the screenshots

and i have tried both the stable Google play edition and the beta google play edition and both do not have this feature

it would be awesome if you added it

Hi

 

I tried the multi window with chrome and emby. This work only if the emby app, i don't know how to say, is in foreground.

 

I do this very often, but with two different browsers. In this case the video is playing while surfing in the other browser.

yea currently if you switch to another app the video will pause and this is by design. it's always something we can reconsider though.

Is this function possible?

 

With the pip function, the video is so small and the size can not be changed.

In the multiwindow view, the screen is better utilized in the portait view.

 

This works with a second browser, but I would rather use the app.

 

 

thanks

I find PiP very useful when I'm watching YouTube and trying to look something up on my browser at the same time.

 

And now I've noticed it's there in the beta on my Note 9!

 

Works great! Except if the screen locks, the video cuts out, and you'll see black unless you stop and restart the video.
