Floats on top

Pipvid will automatically toggle Floats on Top for VLC and QuickTime when activated.

Works across spaces

Optionally assign QuickTime and VLC to all your desktops, making sure the window travels with you when you switch spaces.

Note: this is an experimental feature, enable it first in Preferences.
