Its not an apple constraint, espn updated the watchespn app wth pip. Its just taking longer for developers to impliment it i guess.Agreed.
Lack of YouTube PIP doesn't bother me personally though as YT is an occasional 3 minute diversion for me.
It's absence from 3rd party video apps due to Apple constraints bugs the hell out of me though, such a great feature rendered utterly useless currently. The stock video app is an utter joke, not to mention what an absolute pita it is using iTunes for management/metadata.
It is a constraint for video files that aren't standard Apple formats like MP4. See the Infuse Pro support thread.Its not an apple constraint, espn updated the watchespn app wth pip. Its just taking longer for developers to impliment it i guess.
This isn't quite right. To use PiP, an app doesn't need to use the built in player, they just need to say that the video in question support being handed off to the PiP.PIP support has been disappointing so far.
I found myself grumbling that it hasn't appeared in the Infuse Pro app, until I discovered in an Infuse support thread that it's largely down to Apple only allowing Apple supported video formats for PIP - so no mkv etc . I REALLY hope they relax that at some point, no way am I going back to the stunted, nay threadbare, functionality of the stock video player, uuurgh. I'd really like to make better use of PIP though.
