Ffmpeg snap on ubuntu 18.04 installs but is missing shared library libpulsecommon-8.0.so

This bug appears to have been reported on gihub and subsequently fixed in November 2017:

ffmpeg snap on ubuntu 18.04 appears to be from August 2017.

Snap info for ffmpeg is as follows:

:~$ snap info ffmpeg
name:      ffmpeg
summary:   Record, convert, and stream audio and video
publisher: snapcrafters

  FFmpeg is a collection of libraries and tools to process multimedia content
  such as audio, video, subtitles and related metadata.

How do I go about raising this to whoever maintains the ubuntu snap repository, so that this snap can be repackaged with the working spec in github?

We should unpublish that snap from the store until someone has time to fix it. What do you think @evan?

Hi @crafty. The ever-awesome @Wimpress has updated ffmpeg to 4.0:

Can you give that a try and let us know if it fixes your issue?
