Best way to get at least 1.14.2 on Raspberry Pi?

I am working on a WebRTC experiment on a Raspberry Pi using the
gstreamer Python bindings. Since there is a bug in gstreamer versions
before 1.14.2 that causes a double free when using the full
PeerConnection like webrtc flow in Python, I need at least this version.
However, the gstreamer version on Debian stretch is 1.10.2 - way too
Things I've tried:
1) Looking at Deb Multimedia packages, but it doesn't have 1.14.2 for
2) I tried running the cerbero build on the Raspberry itself, which is
very slow and I kept running into small build failures. Working around
each of those and restrating the $ cerbero package gstreamer-1.0 has not
gotten me there yet.
3) I tried an armhf cross compilation on an X86 Ubuntu 18.04 system,
which perhaps builds but does not succeed in packaging .deb files that I
can use on the RPI.
4) I am now working on a docker image using the resin
raspberrypi:stretch image and run the cross compilation "natively"
inside that image using their qemu-based emulation approach using RUN
) - this is a bit better in terms of build performance, and it gets
relatively far but I still have some build failures using cerbero, that
I am still working around (for example, even though I have install
libx11-dev the cebero build complains it can't find the x11 dependency,
similar for OpenGL). I have now added "nogl" and "nox11" to the cerbero
variants and I am observing the next build. The roundtrip time here is
very long as well.
What would you suggest to get a recent, i.e. at least 1.14.2, binary on
the Raspberry Pi?
Thank you very much for your suggestions,
