First, you need to set swrContext to NULL at the beginning, like:

AVFrame *frame = NULL; SwrContext *swrContext = NULL;

Then, here you should set the output frequency:

int out_sample_rate = 48000;
swr_alloc_set_opts(swrContext, AV_CH_LAYOUT_STEREO, AV_SAMPLE_FMT_FLT, 
codecContext->sample_fmt, codecContext->sample_rate, 0,

Then, you should not need to memcpy anything as that's what swr_convert 
should do for you.  However, you might want to set your buffer bigger 
than two channels as avcodec_receive_frame might return multiple frames 
of sound.  By doing that, you won't have to worry about overrunning the 
buffer.  Also, you might want to use extended_data, for formats that 
have more than 4 channels.

// Somewhere else
localBuffer = av_malloc( sizeof(float) * out_sample_rate * nb_samples + 


swr_convert(swrContext, (uint8_t**)&localBuffer, frame->nb_samples, 
(const uint8_t **) frame->extended_data, frame->nb_samples);
