Although, I think that link is "missing" intentionally. The point of renaming 
the libs (to libavcodec58_91, libavutil56_51 and similar) in the first place 
was that they are *not* fully compatible with libavcodec58, libavutil56 and so 
on, AIUI.
Adding a symlink would basically revert that change, and it would be easier to 
just remove the patch (that renames the libs) then from the openSUSE package 

Installing the libs from ffmpeg-3 (libavcodec57 and libavutil55 e.g., which 
are still available on Packman) should help here as well though, at least if 
the affected applications still support them (Firefox at least does).

In the case of self-compiled stuff, you might just have to recompile it 
against openSUSE's (or Packman's for that matter) ffmpeg 4.3.

A different solution I suppose would probably be to also add back ffmpeg-4.2 
to openSUSE and/or Packman for compatibility.

Kind Regards,
