Where’s the non menu bar version that worked on BigSur?

It’s in the Mubbii branch
It is no longer being maintained however there are forks of the “Mubbii” which are being maintained.
Note: The codebase for Mubbii is very bad as it was hacked together in couple hours

Why drop support for Mubbii?

Mubbii required mpv and youtube-dl to be installed. This is a standalone app. Internals have been reworked from the ground up for new macOS version.
