I also had doubts about my answer, so I tried to sort out my 
environment (Tumbleweed) and tried rebuild vlc and MPlayer to give an
accurate answer.
But I made a big mistake in the process, destroying my key
environment, where I installed two different live555s in a complicated
So, I decided to use only 2023.01.19 live555 to be closer to the
current situation.

I remember wrongly that the build was done on 12 January.
When I tried to rebuild today, it failed with an error, so I checked
and found that the cause was an update of libplacebo, so I got the
4.208.0 version and was able to rebuild.
I got a vlc that depends only on libBasicUsageEnvironment.so.2
(live555.2023.01.19), as Mathias wanted, and I found out why, as
Mathias asked.
I don't understand why the dependency on libBasicUsageEnvironment.so.1
appeared, as per Mathiasb's question.

I haven't checked the Packman's package contents, but in my environment,
I can build it with ffmpeg-5 support. 
I think it may be that the Packman's package content is to detach .git
directory under ffmpeg in MPlayer and build.

This was also a misremembering, and when I looked at it, it was from
I'm not interested in internet streaming in the first place, so today
I built it with --disable-live.
