    Pop-out window for web videos

    Hopefully this is in the proper forum.

    I know some C# and C++ programming but I have never touched any form of web programming. I'm not looking to learn how to actually web program right now.

    First I need to get an understanding of what language is needed to accomplish what I am looking to do.

    I'm looking into how a pop-out window can be developed for watching videos, not just Youtube but all kinds of videos.
    An example of this can be found here:
    http://knowsomethingabout.blogspot.c...ut-window.html

    Also, I want the pop-out window to be its own parent window and not a child of another. So if the user minimizes the browser, the pop-out still remains.

    If I wanted to do something like this, is HTML or CSS even the right language to get started with?

    Thanks in advance.

    You need HTML for the actual pages (actually these are two HTML documents, one with the main content, including a link to the popup window, and one that is the actual content of the popup) and a little JavaScript for invoking the popup. Note, however, that nowadays people can block popups and therefore this concept is slightly outdated (although still applicable). CSS is for the looks of the content on the pages, i. e. to style the HTML elements.
