You'll need to build those dependencies yourself, or use a newer OS. 
Debian Stretch is old and it's going to be impossible to build WebKit 
with all features enabled there unless you build many of the 
dependencies (e.g. GStreamer) yourself. For the official Debian builds, 
features that require newer versions of dependencies (e.g. media source 
extensions, needed for YouTube to work well) are simply disabled.

I think Buster should be new enough for you to do a full-featured build.
