[packman] Handbrake in openSUSE_Leap_15.0 - trouble with multi-channel audio videos

Hi there,

I'm not sure if this phenomenon is related to/caused by my local setup,
but this is what I see:

  I use Handbrake to convert .ts streams from my SAT receiver (Dreambox)
  to .mkv files. PC and Dreambox are locally connected via LAN.
  The current version in packman/Multimedia (1.1.2-lp150.1.5) appears to
  guess the streams contained in the source stream, which means, it
  reads the whole file (i.e. downloads it from the Dreambox) for each
  guess attempt. For streams with 3 audio channels this means
  downloading the whole file three times...

This wasn't the case on openSUSE_Leap_42.3. FWIW, I have branched
handbrake-1.0.7 from the Multimedia repository to my home repo and built
it for openSUSE_Leap_15.0 now; as a result I can now happily convert
such stream without downloading everything and multiple times in

Would it be possible to get a handbrake-1.0.7 package for
openSUSE_Leap_15.0? To me version 1.1.2 doesn't appear to be usable at

TIA, cheers.
