This is the size of a mini player that does not prevent you from doing other work on your computer, so you can use it, for example, when you want to play a music video as background music on the YouTube. But it is unlikely that it will be possible to fully watch videos or music clips in this format.

This feature is very convenient, especially for those users who often use this platform as an additional when they themselves are working on another task on their computer. By the way, this is how you can search for other content on the YouTube without interrupting the playback of the current one.

The presence of such an option in the service makes its use very comfortable. The only downside of the mini-player remains the modest window format on the home screen of the computer.
