Default How to install FFmpeg in docker container via MyJDownloader?

I'm using MyJDownloader to control a JDownloader that is running in a Docker container (the image I used is dbarton/jdownloader from Docker Hub). Normal usage works fine, but now I'd like to install FFmpeg to be able to download from YouTube.

When a YouTube download starts, the MyJDownloader web UI actually shows a message that seems to allow me to install FFmpeg. After I confirm that, the download shows "Skipped - Restart Required". But after a restart the installation dialog for FFmpeg installation pops up again

I've checked the logs, specifically org.jdownloader.controlling.ffmpeg.FFmpeg.log.0 and it doesn't show any errors. Here is it's full content:
------------------------Thread: 886:org.jdownloader.controlling.ffmpeg.FFmpeg.log-----------------------                                                                                                    
--ID:886TS:1526150627783-5/12/18 8:43:47 PM -  [org.jdownloader.controlling.ffmpeg.FFmpegProvider(install)] -> Started Install process                                                                      
--ID:886TS:1526150645784-5/12/18 8:44:05 PM -  [org.jdownloader.controlling.ffmpeg.FFmpegProvider(install)] -> Ended Install process

I've also checked the folder /jdownloader/tools/linux but there is no ffmpeg folder in there (just rtmpdump).

Can someone help please?

There has been a bug in extension installation that should be fixed with update today morning. You can also easily install ffmpeg yourself, eg from johnvansickle.com/ffmpeg/
and setup the full path to binary in Settings-Advanced Settings-search for ffmpeg and ffprobe
