    I'm going to write car video recorder. I want to record video at the background agent. But calling
    new CaptureSource() { VideoCaptureDevice = CaptureDeviceConfiguration.GetDefaultVideoCaptureDevice() };
    causes the exception : Invalid cross-thread access.
    How could i find the thread where i can run it?

    Loving these videos since I discovered them. A fun and entertaining way of answering the questions I have. Shortened my learning curve cause all I need to do is watch the video of the feature I'm interested in and I'm already familiar. Thank you for taking the time to do this.
