// Interface for an object capable of vending video frames. There is no
// requirement for a |VideoFrameFactory| to be concurrent but it must not be
// pinned to a specific thread. Indeed, |VideoFrameFactory| implementations are
// created by cast on the main cast thread then used by unknown client threads
// via the |VideoFrameInput| interface.
// Clients are responsible for serialzing access to a |VideoFrameFactory|.
// Generally speaking, it is expected that a client will be using these objects
// from a rendering thread or callback (which may execute on different threads
// but never concurrently with itself). Forcing every implementation to take a
// lock, even with no contention, is an unnecessary cost, especially on mobile
// platforms.
