I think you misunderstood, ffmpeg is largely based on free software, and you are granted the license you see when you run ffmpeg -L.
That is the license you already have. Can you post the output of ffmpeg -L? And if you are using the command line tool or the libraries?
Getting different terms for use is probably impossible, though people do offer paid support and development services.
I think it will probably say GNU GPL v3 (just a guess, I could be wrong) and if it does, you have the license to use the  command line tool under the terms of GPL v3.

Here’s a page outlining the basics of what the license stipulates.
