Some more information on your pipeline/setup would be nice.

In general, video sinks (it sounds like you are talking about video
here) will drop frames that are "too late", and send QoS events upstream
which the decoder/demuxer can use to skip ahead and catch up. This is
generally the default behaviour. You can disable it by setting
max-lateness=-1 on the video sink element.
