You know how you never manage to get any work done because of all the distractions on the Internet? Social media is especially notorious for making one procrastinate, but don’t even get me started on YouTube; it’s always “just one more video and I’ll get to work.”
So you could just stop pretending that you actually care about your work and start watching YouTube while you perform other activities on your PC, with an app called YouTube Corner.
The perfect procrastination tool
In a world where attention spans are getting shorter and software companies everywhere are trying to create programs to help people increase productivity, YouTube Corner tries to do exactly the opposite. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying this app is a bad thing, just don’t expect your boss to be cool with you using it.
It all comes down to your ability to focus on multiple things at the same time, really. You could be tempted to believe that the app helps you save the time spent switching between your browser window and your workspace, until you realize that this isn’t really the case.
So, how does it work?
Since the program is portable, it doesn’t require any installation. As soon as you open it, a window containing a YouTube player will appear in the bottom-right corner of your screen. You can make YouTube videos play there by copying their URLs from the browser and then clicking the small YouTube icon on the top-left of the app’s window. Unfortunately, there’s no Autoplay option.
The window stays always-on-top and also moves away from your cursor if you try to grab it once. This feature was designed so the app doesn’t get in your way when you’re working, but it only makes it more difficult to move the window. Even if it’s an interesting the idea, YouTube Corner isn’t exactly an app that you could consider useful, while its limited design doesn’t make it any more appealing.

Have you ever gone to your work and realized you have absolutely nothing to do? I have, and instead of going about my work, I would just check Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, or other websites for a quick distraction. This gets me nowhere. Now that I have a YouTube app for my Mac, I don’t have to worry about all that. I can watch videos on YouTube while I continue to work, and it saves a great deal of my time.
Try it yourself
YouTube Corner is a simple tool that could, theoretically, be very useful. Don’t expect it to be a universal solution, though. While this app is certainly more interesting than YouTube is at the moment, it’s still not the best option for those who want to get some work done.
It’s still a better solution than the apps that are currently available if you’re looking to have videos playing in the background. It only plays YouTube, after all. If you’re looking for something really different, though, think about using YouTube on your computer, or better yet, YouTube on your Mac. The second-best app for that is called YouTube TV.
Is YouTube a bad idea
I think YouTube is a bad idea, so I’m definitely going to have a bias when I talk about it. I think it’s a situation where the UI is so bad you can’t help but be addicted to it. And believe me, when you’re watching a video on YouTube, you’ll be watching it every single time it’s on the screen, unless you close it and open it again. That sounds like a bad experience, and it’s for most people.
With that in mind, I personally hate when YouTube videos start playing automatically. You’ll see people whose browser is open and have a video playing in the background, and even that just makes me frustrated because I’m waiting for them to stop it and get back to work.
Why you should not use YouTube
Not only am I going to have a bias, I’m also going to give a reason why you shouldn’t use YouTube. This is a reflection of where YouTube currently is, and I’m probably not going to convince anyone but me.
If you’re looking for something that plays videos automatically, I would recommend you use Netflix. Yes,

I just tried this app and it is easy. When I first opened it, I noticed an option to download video files with the title of the video on them. This option is not there in the browser version. I’m glad I could have it with me. I’ve been looking for that option for a long time.
I’m testing out YouTube Corner and it’s amazing. I wonder if it’s possible to have the current video playing without the annoying ads? And if I could make YouTube Corner cover my whole desktop, that would be perfect. This app is so appealing to me.

I use a couple of different programs to help me stay on task. I just love when I stumble on a site that offers something useful to me as a producer. I believe in testing as much as I can before I post. So many times something has come up that I didn’t think of and it’s something you thought about and posted. I then get thanked for something I didn’t think of. So doing a bit of thinking before posting has always helped me in the past.
I like to have a couple of things going. If I
YouTube Corner acts as a side window for YouTube content, allowing you to watch and listen to videos while working.
Find the YouTube URL of any video you want to watch and paste it into the corresponding entry form.
The app will open the video on YouTube in your system’s default browser and then load it automatically.
When a YouTube video plays, a task bar window (similar to the status bar of a browser) will appear in the lower right corner of your screen.
Tap the task bar window to increase your work-productivity by distracting you less.
When you’re done with a video, tap the X button to exit.
The video has now ended, and you can listen to the corresponding audio content with the volume control on your phone.
Enjoy the difference
As soon as the YouTube content starts playing in the app, you might be skeptical. Just a few seconds after clicking the YouTube button, you’ll realize that the content is located far away from your computer screen. I’m pretty sure you’re going to guess that this is a good thing, but it’s really not.
From a user’s perspective, the app works as intended. You find the URL of a video and paste it into the corresponding entry field, which opens it in your browser. Unfortunately, it’s unclear whether this program tries to replicate the experience of watching a video on a TV, which you may be used to.
The thing is, YouTube Corner makes you completely forget about everything else, and it’s hard to say if it’s a good or a bad thing. You can watch videos while working, so the app lets you concentrate on your work while making sure that you don’t miss any relevant content. I don’t think this is a bad thing at all, and it may actually benefit your productivity and result in less procrastination.
The thing is, though, that you’re not the only person who wants to use the app. It’s designed to get in your way, which means that it’s bound to annoy people. Sure, you can justify your actions, but then what will your boss say?

You should already have enough distractions in your life, like TV and radio and all the music that is invading your mind and eventually will kill you.
So instead of making things even worse, we came up with the perfect solution to cure your boredom: YouTube Corner!
Countless hours on YouTube in the background as you work on your own projects or focus on your grades.

With the exception of the floating window, the only parts of this app you can use are the player and the menu bar.
You’ll need to install this app in addition to the YouTube YouTube API and the Chrome Extension APIS, as explained below.
This project has only been tested on Windows 7, but hopefully, the developers will implement compatibility with Windows 8.
First things first
Before you can use YouTube Corner, you’ll need to first install the Chrome Extension API, YouTube API and download the program itself.
Since these downloads are quite large, be sure to have a stable Internet connection and check your Internet provider if you’re planning to use this app from time to time.
Chrome Extension API
The video player doesn’t really need to be any more powerful than YouTube’s traditional one, but the desktop app’s app is only compatible with Chrome.
So, you’ll need to download the Chrome Extension API from Google’s official website.
You’ll also need to download and run the YouTube API, as well as the program. If you’re on Windows, you’ll need to download and run the Windows Installer.
All the installation files are available as free downloads, but you’ll need to get them directly from Google in order to save time, as the downloads are quite large.
After that, you’ll need to enter the URL that you got from the instructions for installing the program at the GitHub website, as shown below:
Clicking on the “Copy to Clipboard” button will copy the URL to your clipboard.
Afterward, you should run YouTube Corner as administrator to be able to properly access the extension’s API.
