It's because the sink has to slave its clock to the pipeline clock,
which is the one provided by the source. Usually you get little glitches
when the clocks try to match rates and or when resync happens because
the clocks drift too much.
If you don't need synchronization between the playback and the capture,
you can set slave-method=none on the sink or the source.
