Why a picture in picture polyfill
The w3c has described a standard API that should be implemented by every browser willing to add picture-in-picture (pip) features on the video element. However, Safari has to this date implemented an other api, making it difficult for web developers to develop and maintain pip features on their website.
We therefore want to provide a polyfill that will add the w3c pip API to safari.
How do I use it ?
The polyfill is a ~100 lines single file, that you can find here. Feel free to use this in your own code !
The polyfill is fully tested. If you want to see the results of the tests, go here
If you want to play around with the w3c api in safari, open this page in your browser, and use the api in the console !
