Packman's vlc package is just a link to the version from the standard repos 
(with additional codecs enabled).

So it will only get updated to 3.0.7's code if Leap 15.0's version is, and it 
contains exactly the same patches as Leap 15.0's version.

That means that if you have a problem that's fixed in later versions you 
should report it to openSUSE's bugzilla to get a backport (or maybe a newer 

But I doubt that it will be updated to a later version just for the sake of 

Leap 15.1 ships with vlc 3.0.6 though at least (with some patches on top). ;-)
So you could upgrade to get a later vlc version, 15.0 will be out of support 
in 5 months anyway.

Kind Regards,
