I'm sorry. I had a look some days ago to vlc and noticed it was failing due
to the fdk update, so I fixed that and noticed it built fine on TW, but
didn't notice it was still failing in Leap 15.0.

I have now submitted https://pmbs.links2linux.de/request/show/4402 and
https://pmbs.links2linux.de/request/show/4403 to fix it in Leap 15.0 and
15.1 respectively. It seems 42.3 builds fine.

I also submitted https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/676181 to fix it
in obs, which should arrive soon to Factory.

I'll now have a look at handbrake. If there's anything else left to do,
please tell me (here, or on irc)
