    Default Chrome plugin for Syphon on Mac OS X?

    Syphon is an Mac OS X technology that allows applications to share frames - full frame rate video or stills - with one another in realtime. This is done by giving access to the frames on the GPU using the Mac OS only IOSurface technology. Thus Syphon performs really well compared to e.g. screen capture applications as no data is moved away from the GPU.
    Syphon has become popular in communities dealing with realtime graphics development for piping graphics between apps. Another real life use case would be sending the window contents of an application to a video conferencing app.

    I am in no way an application developer myself so I apologise for entering this forum without any knowledge of how Chrome plugins work. However I come directly from a thread on the Syphon forum that brought up this topic.

    Would it be possible to create a Chrome plugin that shares a page in Chrome as a Syphon source?
    Or is there some obvious reason it would not work.

    Mind you I am not asking for someone to create this plugin, I would just someone to take a quick look at the links below and give me a qualified opinion about whether this would be something to explore further.
