I don't have the exact answer, but here is how I would get there.  Most 
of the encoders support some type of bitrate.  So I would
gst-inspect | grep -i encode | grep -i video

then look through that list
and then
gst-inspect theoraenc | grep -i rate
Then try them all limiting them to the same bitrate.  After that, go 
with whichever looks the best.
