    No.
    for an app to do this it would need OS support,
    and there is no OS support for multi window GUI.

    Now, someone could write an app that combined the functionality-
    e.g. a third-party web browser that also handled inline video,
    but short of something clunky like Skyfire, it hasn't been done, and is probably not going to happen.
