Nice to see someone attempt auto pip but it doesn't auto pip if the video is not already in pip from the get go. You first have to initiate it then it will work if you go back to the tab and then move away again. However sometimes this allow stops working. If the author can fix the problems it would be great as I don't see any other extention going it.

Excellent, really works. The ONLY one that really works by the way. One note for the dev: It automatically triggers, but once you return back to the original tab, and switch again, it won't work the second time. It only works the second time if you pause and un-pause the video first. Perhaps there's a workaround for that?
