I don’t use swift, but I think i see some errors in there

*) Dont specify pixel buffer attributes and AVFoundation will vend frames in a native fast path format. Requesting buffer format will occasionally add overhead as say, RGB frames need to be sent as YUV.

*) You probably don’t want a planar format, but something like kCVPixelFormatType_422YpCbCr8 or kCVPixelFormatType_422YpCbCr8_yuvs or kCVPixelFormatType_32BGRA. 420 format is usually for DV chroma sub-sampled video and will look like shit 🙂 BGRA 32 is native fast path RGBA upload on Intel x86/x64 machines for 4:4:4 sampling RGB.

*) kCVPixelBufferIOSurfacePropertiesKey is a dictionary, not a string

*) you appear to be leaking textures every frame

*) Your texture format and your buffer format do not match. You’re submitting textures and BGRA,but requesting them as 420. Use kCVPixelFormatType_32BGRA for your format type.

Otherwise it seems to be on the right path!
