See video player and reader at the same time

I’ve been using lingq quite a bit for podcast-style content. E.g. listening to audio and reading at the same time. Recently I’ve been trying to consume some video content and I’m a bit confused about how to effectively use lingq here.

With audio content, it is possible to listen and at the same time page through the reader, make new lingqs, and lookup words, etc…

However, with video’s, it doesn’t seem like it is possible to see the reader at the same time as the video. Ideally, I’d like to be able to watch videos and if there’s something I don’t understand, be able to quickly look up the word. It seems like the only text you can see while watching a video is the “synchronized text” which doesn’t let you look up words. It’s very cumbersome to toggle between the two.

I’m not sure what the point is of watching videos inside lingq if it’s not possible to lookup words and create new lingqs. I.e. I could just go on youtube and watch the video with subtitles.

Am I missing something here?
