ffmplay is missing because it requires SDL2 since ffmpeg 3.2, but the 
Leap 42.3 package is built without SDL2.

Apparently the reason is because SDL2 is not available in SLE 12 SP3, 
from the changelog:

- Conditionalize pkgconfig(libopenjpeg) and pkgconfig(sdl2)
   BuildRequires: Fix build for SLE 12 SP3.

This could probably be fixed by adding a "|| 0{?is_opensuse}" to the 
corresponding %if in the package.

That's not a Packman specific "problem" though, it's rather inherited 
from the standard openSUSE package.
So you'd need to file a bug report at bugzilla.opensuse.org to get it 

Although, Leap 42.3 is nearly EOL, ffmpeg-3 in 15.0 and later does 
contain ffplay as well.

Kind Regards,
