How to Enable Floating Video on BS Player on Your Android
First get a good idea about this floating video on android feature. I have seen an awesome video demonstrating the floating video feature on android but not using BS Player. But it is enough to get an idea. Though you can use it on any android device, a big screen is always good for multitasking.
Install BS Player, a hardware accelerated super android video player, and run the app. Its free version is ad-supported. Doesn’t matter, right?
After installing BS Player, run the app. Play any of your favorite video. Now get ready to float that video over any of the apps. To do that access the BS Player menu from its home screen by tapping the vertical three dots while the video is playing
Select “Close with popup video”. It immediately enables the floating mode. Now you can see that video playing window automatically got re-sized. Get ready to drag and drop it any where on the screen over any app. You can tap the soft back button on the bottom of your phone to go back and run any apps while the video floating above.
It’s a pure example of multitasking on Android. Enjoy two apps at a time. A video player floating on top and any of your other app on the rest.
