So i am having an issue with nvenc on my leap 15.3 machines with obs-studio
and handbrake failing to work with nvenc.  I checked if the nvenc flags
where added to ffmpeg for leap and found that it is missing.

Codec 'h264_nvenc' is not recognized by FFmpeg.

What it looks like in tumbleweed (not my machine)
