Yes, from the corresponding Update repo on OBS.

The codecs are conditionally in the source package in the standard openSUSE 
version already, in Packman just a flag is needed to actually enable them.

Btw, nowadays vlc-codecs is not necessarily needed anymore as the standard 
version is built against ffmpeg and can use all codecs the installed ffmpeg 
And there's also support for gstreamer plugins.

TBH, I'm not involved in Packman myself, nor in vlc... ;-)
