    I have a question about the Compact Overlay Window that I am hoping someone on the Preview can answer.

    Will there be a way to play YouTube videos using the Compact Overlay? If not immediately, will it be possible for a YouTube app developer to add the functionality?

    Probably not the answer you were looking for but...

    Thanks for the answer, and for your suggestion. I had not thought of doing that.

    Not an ideal solution, but for longer video podcasts it will work. I generally watch a lot of 5 minute videos that I get queued up for watching, so won't work for that, but I'll contact a developer about implementation.
