What repos do you have? I see ffmpeg in KDE:Applications,
KDE:Unstable:Applications and KDE:Unstable:Frameworks. Since the ffmpeg
in OBS is independent from ffmpeg in PMBS there may be confusion.

It would be difficult, but not impossible, to make each package from
packman require the packages used during build. So far noone has done
that work.
