Video & screenshots
is a solution to help you watch streaming video while you do something else. It works by creating a clone of a selected area in which video is playing. The cloned video is displayed in a small window that is always on top of the rest. It is similar to picture-in-picture feature available in some TVs.
The program’s interface is a small unattractive window with a menu. Although at first sight it may seem difficult to figure out, there are tips to help you find your way. They appear whenever you click on a menu command but you may choose to avoid them once you have grasped the idea of the whole process.
In order to use the program, the first step is to select the screen area you wish to clone. You can do that automatically by using the Get Video function. In addition, you are also allowed to mark it manually by dragging and resizing a semitransparent window. At this point, you will be ready to use the picture-in-picture feature. This means that a small window will start showing everything that is displayed in the previously selected screen area, even if the video player is no longer on the foreground.
In addition to its main picture-in-picture function, the program can also be used to record video from the marked area. This is very useful when you need to grab streaming video that cannot be recorded in any other way.
In general, VideoClone
is a fine application that solves the problem of watching video while performing other tasks. However, before you spend any money on it, you should know that you can set some media players be always on top. With this option on, it would suffice to resize the player’s window.

Watch TV While You Work with Picture-in-Picture Video
Just like your TV, VideoClone adds PIP (Picture-in-picture) to your PC. While you watch any web video, VideoClone duplicates it in any size, anywhere on your screen, on top of all your applications. It's a great way to keep an eye on sports, live streaming news, or other events while you work. You can even move, grow or shrink the video screen at any time while video is playing.
