I don't know the answer here. I guess that time will tell what can still be
done with Chromium or not. Unfortunately Chromium is no longer that modular
that we could build just the media stuff on Packman to enrich the experience.

and this is some experience we shall avoid to give the users. The
solution would be probably for user to uninstall his/her chromium and
install one from packman. I do not remmber if you managed to get it to
have installed multiple versions of the moment.

There is nothing from Packman to install. Packman only builds the ffmpeg
library. If these codecs are indeed forming a problem, then the only solution
would indeed be to drop Chromium from openSUSE distro and start building it
completely on Packman.
