obsolete gstreamer in webkit

I'm working on an app developped with Qt 5.5.1, using QtWebKit.
I try to bluid it on the new Ubuntu 18.04, but I can't.
The error tells that the module qt5Webkit not found the libgstreamer-0.10
But this version of gstreamer is obsolete since years, an it is not possible to install it on the new ubuntu.
Also, I can't upgrade to a newer version au Qt for now, it's for later, and I can't use webengine instead of webkit for now, because I need my app to be able to build it with mingw on windows too.
My question is : am I forced to reluid all the qt parts that use gstreamer to be able to use gstreamer1.0 ? Why are not they pre-built with the newer version ?
There's only QtWebKit and QtMultimedia that are affected.
Because the binary packages are built for the officially older version of Linux supported.
However, nothing stops you from rebuilding the modules against a more recent version of GStreamer provided that the backends of that old version supports it.
