Yeah, I also wanted to write about it to geniuses that decided that it would be great idea to build gstreamer-ffmpeg shim with crippled ffmpeg that results in that shim being crippled and practically useless too which is clearly seen in YaST during vendor change (dependencies->provides) from installed version to OBS one. And all that just after I already explicitly complained here about 32bit gstreamer and libav being made unavailable.

Although, I see that gstreamer-plugins-bad and gstreamer-plugins-bad-orig-addon provide most common formats, including mp3 and h264. Uncrippled gst-libav supports a ton of formats but I wonder how many of them are actually unique to it.
