In https://www.webmproject.org/code you can see a list of mirrors. In your 
case, I would try with https://github.com/webmproject/libvpx/

Edit Tools/gstreamer/jhbuild.modules near line 22 (<repository ... 
href="https://chromium.googlesource.com/webm/">) and change it to point to the 
github url.

If that still doesn't work and you don't find alternative ways to download the 
libvpx-1.7.0 library, maybe you can just disable vp8/vp9 support by getting 
rid of the vpx definitions in jhbuild.modules and then removing the <dep 
package="libvpx"/> dependency in the <autotools id="gst-plugins-good" ...>
