How to turn on Youtube Mini Player

To activate the Miniplayer, just hover over a video while it’s playing on YouTube.com and find the little button that looks like a box close to settings. Click on it, and the video will immediately shrink down into the lower-right corner, and the homepage will appear on the screen so you can start browsing.

Once you have put a video in the Miniplayer, you can still access many of the controls available on the video page, including play/pause, seeking, and jumping to the next video in the playlist. Hitting the X button on the Miniplayer or the ESC button on your keyboard will dismiss the player, as will clicking on a new video.

Additional, Google also said he has fixed the bug causing some upcoming live videos to show the “upcoming” time in the wrong time zone. YouTube has also added a ‘save’ label on playlists to enable saving them and then accessing them on mobile or web platform later on. Full fixes shared below:

  • Some upcoming live videos were showing the “upcoming” time in the wrong timezone, fixed that!
  • Added a “SAVE” label to the save to playlist button on video pages. Now everything’s more consistent across web and our mobile apps!
  • The text in some pop-up windows (for example, the window that appears when you click Share > Embed) would run over the edge of the window, fixed that!
  • Some three-dot menu items were showing up blank with no info, fixed that!
  • When you click ‘Share’ and use the ‘Start At’ checkbox, the time would sometimes be out of sync with the URL, fixed that!
