1. a cvpixelbuffer backed by iosurface can always be converted to an opengl texture, using CGLTexImageIOSurface2D for macOS, and undocumented api texImageIOSurface(which is internally used by public api CVOpenGLESTextureCacheCreateTextureFromImage) for iOS4.0+.
2. enabling the attribute can slow down decoding speed a lot. I tested many video clips on my macbook air. for example: ffmpeg -ss 00:00:00 -t 00:03:00 -hwaccel videotoolbox -an -i big_buck_bunny_1080p_h264.mov -f null ->/dev/null, result with the attribute
enabled: frame= 2082 fps= 85 q=-0.0 Lsize=N/A time=00:03:00.00 bitrate=N/A speed=7.34x
disabled: frame= 2031 fps=104 q=-0.0 Lsize=N/A time=00:03:00.00 bitrate=N/A speed=9.22x
