Float on scroll

Keeps the player visible when the original player location is scrolled out of view by minimizing it to a corner of the screen

On devices in portrait orientation, the player becomes fixed to the top of the page using its original dimensions.

When floating, the viewer can drag the player to reposition it. This functionality is disabled during ad playback.

By default, adding an empty floating object enables the floating player functionality and also sets dismissible: true.

Use the following CSS classes to customize the floating player:

You can also use the floating API method to create custom floating timing.


Float on scroll cannot be used with a player that is embedded in an iframe.
