Obvious question, but: Is it that you run this with a non-live pipeline? E.g. 
videotestsrc ! mp4spenc ! ... or transcoding. In this case it is natural for 
the pipeline to take up 100% of CPU since it runs as fast as possible... You 
need to limit the rate at the source by using a live source (like videotestsrc 
is-live=true) or have the sink perform time sync (encoder ! fakesink sync=true 
will do, assuming you forward the input timestamps correctly).
