nevertheless... Now that I have my PMBS account, I did the following:

  0. Copy the project config from Essentials to my home project
  1. Branch openSUSE.org:openSUSE:Leap:42.3:Update package ffmpeg-4
     to my local package A_42.3-ffmpeg-4
  2. Build the package for all four architectures (aarch64, armv7l,
     i586, x86_64)

The ARM variants are not finished yet, i586 is unresolvable (nothing
provides pkgconfig(vidstab) >= 0.98), but x86_64 build succeeded and the
packages work as expected.

As a result, Firefox can play back MP4 files again now ;)

The important step was step 0 above as it defines a lot of settings
which are needed for the Packman builds...

So, someone would have to remove the Essentials/A_42.3-ffmpeg-4 package
and re-create it again; I would, but I am not allowed as a normal build

HTH, cheers.
