Play videos in pop-up window above Facebook and other applications on Android

If you want floating windows for YouTube videos as well as Facebook, TED, Vimeo, Vine, and other media sites, you can do so using an app called Awesome Pop-Up Video. The only downside is that it requires Xposed Framework which means you must have root access in order to use this app functionality.
To get your video floating over your display, you’ll need to be rooted with the Xposed Framework installed, as well as have installation of apps from “Unknown sources” enabled. (If you’re running Android’s latest operating system, find out how to install the Xposed Framework on Lollipop.)

Installing Awesome Pop-Up Video

On your device, head into the Google Play Store to install Awesome Pop-up Video from developer Dragan Atanasov. Once installed, make sure to activate the module in the Xposed Installer app.

Setting Up Awesome Pop-up Video

Other than selecting the video quality, the settings do not offer much, or need to. Other options include purchasing the premium version, which will allow for video downloading and playback longer than five minutes, as well as enabling “Background playing.”

Pop Up Your Window

The floating window is functional with apps like YouTube, Vine, Vimeo, and any other application that does not implement a custom video player like VLC or MX Player.

To use it, simply start playing a video (through the official YouTube app or the web). When the Awesome Pop-up Window notification shows up, just tap it to pop up your video window.

The window is easily adjustable with some pinching gestures or by using the window icons. It can be dragged and dropped anywhere and functions within any app.
