Thanks I'll try that.

I've since used BuildRequires: pkgconfig( for all the ffmpeg libs and
at least that gives the same result in openSUSE build service as the
Packman one. I looked at the Packman libffmpeg-devel and it provides
what it requires so maybe that's a clue but it doesn't explain why
Leap builds flawlessly.
