Stale Decoder Error

I am using teamspeak 5. Every so often when I am moved from one channel to another, my teamspeak crashes instantly. I get: [2020-04-09 18:58:57.903] [error] Stale Decoder detected, terminating it. Was ever active = 1

and then

[2020-04-09 18:58:57.906] [error] [Capture] CaptureDeviceContext callbackWaits2 wait exceeded 5 secs 258 - Microphone (Blue Snowball)

what do I do to fix this issue?

more info?
what system do you use?
ts5 version?

Looks like you have some issues with the audio. Here are some troubleshootings you can try to fix it:

  • choose other usb-port for mic
  • update your drivers
  • switch capture/playback mode to default/specific device

Because of your tag I assume that you are using TS5?

…and as @Stefan92 said, a complete log would be helpful.


Here is a pastebin link to my log as I could not figure out how to upload files:

I am using Windows 10 and my TS5 version is 5.0.0-beta.24.
