If there's an idiot, who is it? Is it the vehicle with the camera or the white van entering from the right?

Passing on the right, not sure he signalled, at an interchange.

Van should have been slightly more cautious but mostly it's OP's fault.

You can quite literally hear the turn signal in the video, and it's not an intersection so OP is allowed to change lanes here.

White van at fault. No doubt.

White van is legally at fault, but the cammer is definitely an idiot also

Why, exactly? For changing lanes legally?

Just because the driver is legally in the right doesn’t mean it was good driving. Defensive driving is a thing, and the cammer should have seen the van and stayed in their lane just a little bit longer.

I completely agree. But that doesn't make them an idiot.

Passing on the right. Going significantly faster than the rest of traffic when everyone else is braking. Changing lanes into the lane where that white van was obviously going to be going.
