I am running Leap 42.3. It is stated that H.264 is disabled in
ffmpeg in opensuse due to legal reasons:

However, some hardware (for instance Intel Quick Sync Video)
have ability to hardware h264 decoding. And this currently works
for me out of the box via gstreamer-vaapi. So, I think hardware
h264 decoding is allowed in opensuse.

At the same time, I've failed to achive this for ffmpeg. I am
tring to follow this guide:

But every time I see the following: "This build of ffmpeg does
not include a "h264" decoder needed for input stream #0:0." Well,
is it possible to force ffmpeg use vaapi by default to decode
h264 in hardware?

Are you using the packman or the OSS build?

I am using packages OSS build.
