Pop Embedded Videos Out As a Resizable Window

PopVideo, a free add-on for Mozilla’s Firefox web browser, lets you pop out videos embedded in webpages. The popped out video will be displayed as a floating, resizable window.

Lots of websites and blogs, including FindMySoft, embedded videos into their articles and posts. That’s quite nice – videos often get the message across faster than text. The downside is that due to space restrictions the embedded videos is a bit too small or awkwardly placed in some corner of the screen. You don’t have to contend with this, not as long as you have a very handy, free Firefox add-on called PopVideo.


What this application does is it takes the video out of its original location on the website and presents it as a floating, resizable window. You can put that window anywhere you want on the screen and you can resize it as you see fit.

Earlier this week I reported that PopCap will release Plants vs. Zombies 2 worldwide on July 18th, exclusively for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. PopCap’s announcement was accompanied by an official trailer for the much awaited sequel to the highly popular Plants vs. Zombies game. I embedded that video down at the bottom of the article, as you can see in the screenshot below.

After you install Pop Embedded (you can get it for free from Mozilla’s add-ons website here), you will see that when you place your mouse over the video, a small icon shows up in the upper right hand corner.

This icon frees you from having to watch the video where it is. By clicking it the video will pop out and it will be presented to you as a floating, resizable window.

Since were talking about videos, I just have to remind you about another handy Firefox add-on called YouTube Smart Pause. If you’re watching a YouTube video and you switch to another tab or minimize the Firefox window, this add-on will automatically pause the video playback.

Getting back to PopVideo, the add-on lets you play with the following options.
