Hey, @robertvj, welcome to Ask.

You can just put the Replit and YouTube tabs side by side; one side is Replit, the other, YouTube. Also if I remember correctly for Replit’s tutorials there is a small YouTube tab.

You can also achieve this with an extension (I found this on Chrome Web Store and don’t worry, the developer is Google itself):
Picture-in-Picture Extension (by Google) - Chrome Web Store


You need an extension for PiP? I don’t have it installed and can use it…

Pretty sure you need an extension for it. I tried to find a button for Picture in Picture, couldn’t find it. How do you do it?

Yeah, I was going to say as UMARismyname is suggesting you could use the tutorial feature to achieve this. Create a folder in your repl called .tutorial and inside it add a video.json file. Then in video.json, add this: { "embedUrl": "" } and insert the YouTube video’s URL inside the embedUrl property (ie: { "embedUrl": "some url" }).


thanks for the help :slight_smile:
