I’m not familiar at all with Discourse’s codebase, and I didn’t actually write any code for a long time, so I thought I might as well post my idea in here.
I wonder if some sort of PIP feature (I guess that is how it’s called) could be implemented in Discourse.
Basically, I would like to be able to keep browsing the forums after I started playing content in a onebox (youtube, soundcloud, etc.). Even if I clicked the top logo and went back to the homepage of my forums, the video would still be playing in a hovering little box.
While I’m not able to reproduce that behaviour at the moment, I’m pretty sure Facebook sometimes did that with videos on the homepage when you kept browsing to the bottom.
It also happens on the android youtube app, when you go back to search results while a video was playing.
Hope that’s clear enough.
