videotestsrc is known to be slow and un-optimized. To add to this, you
are going to make a lot of video memory copies in a pipeline that goes
from CPU to GPU, to CPU and finally to GPU again (because XV extension
does not integrate with GL, it only happens that there is only one
implementation now that is GL based). For such a bitrate, you might
want to move to gltestsrc and glimagesink.
