It means that the application have received he LATENCY message. This
message is sent to signal to the application when the latency of an
element have changed. In gst-launch-1.0, the application will simply
distribute this new latency into the pipeline with
 gst_bin_recalculate_latency(). If you are setting a higher latency,
you will instead want to check that the new combined latency is not
higher then you chosen latency.
