firefox snap 89.0, to play video, you need to install the required video codecs

On ubuntu 20.04, the snap version of firefox can't play some videos. Some youtube videos will play but streams won't, and then I get the message "to play video, you need to install the required video codecs". On telegram web and tweetdeck I also get this message while trying to play some video.

Since it's a snap, nothing I do on my system will solve the problem, I cannot install any codecs.

It's firefox 89.0

At first I thought the error was on the snap version of firefox, but that runs ok. The problem is on the apt-get version. Given that, installing ffmpeg with sudo apt-get install -y ffmpeg and restarting firefox solved
