Want videos to stop showing in Picture-in-Picture overlay when pressing the Home button on your iPad? In this simple tutorial, we will show you how to change this behavior and make it so a video stops playing and the app closes when you press the Home button while watching a video.
Picture in Picture mode is a type of multitasking that was introduced with iOS 9 so you could complete other tasks while simultaneously watching video. Unfortunately those with iPhones, iPod touches, and even some models of iPad can’t use it because it’s restricted to certain models of iPad only.
A new jailbreak tweak called ForceInPicture is now available in Cydia that will enable Picture in Picture mode on all unsupported devices, so long as you’re running iOS 9 or iOS 10 on them.

The release of iOS 9 in September 2015 has brought out support for Picture-in-Picture video on newer iPad models. September 2016’s launch of macOS Sierra has enabled Picture-in-Picture video support on the Mac. Picture-in-Picture lets you watch web videos or iTunes movies in an overlay that always floats over the desktop and your apps.
The Picture-in-Picture overlay can be pinned to any corner of the screen by way of dragging. Unfortunately, Apple has not made it obvious that you can actually position the video overlay anywhere you want on your Mac’s screen.
In this brief tutorial, we’re going to teach you how to disengage any web video from its webpage and position it anywhere on the screen in macOS Sierra.
macOS Sierra was just released with a flurry of new features, one of them being the ability to watch videos in a new mode called Picture-in-Picture. When enabled, this allows you to detach a video from its player, and place it anywhere in a resizable window on your screen. This is particularly handy if you want to watch a video while working, for instance.
While the majority of video players you will encounter will already support Picture-in-Picture, there are a few rebels out there that still don’t, and YouTube is one of them. Fortunately, there is a simple workaround for this.
Picture in Picture, a self-explanatory feature which debuted on compatible iPads with last September’s release of iOS 9, is coming to the desktop near you. That’s right, now desktop users can watch video while they’re multitasking on their Mac, thanks to Picture in Picture support on macOS Sierra.
With a click, you can float a clip from Safari or iTunes in a window over your desktop, and continue watching it as you’re multitasking. The video can be resized, dragged and pinned to any corner of the screen and it even stays put when you switch Spaces.
Netflix on Tuesday pushed out an update for its iOS app, brining the client to version 8.7. It’s a minor release, with just a few items mentioned in the change log, but there’s one significant new feature that’s going to really please iPad fans: Picture in Picture support.
That’s right, folks with a compatible iPad can now watch Netflix in a floating, resizable window while continuing to perform tasks like checking email or browsing Safari. Netflix says you’ll have to be on iOS 9.3.2 or later, and of course you’ll need an iPad Air or later.
