please try this:

To test your FiveM client or see if an issue is related to a server , you can try to connect to connect "https://fivem.net/" or join via FiveM.net testing server / Cfx.re, which is a clean testing server with only basic resources and vMenu.

I’ll try this out with a friend later and i’ll post an update on whatever happens.

:+1: post it here

My mic worked fine on that fivem.net server. Seems like a server mic issue for me. Anyway to fix that on my own?

no the server has to fix it maybe their hardware is too slow?

I’m not sure because i’m the only one experiencing it on that server. :frowning:

hmm weird

Yeah it’s weird. I tried to file a ticket with the server devs / owners and see if they can do something. Thanks btw!

Still open for any fix suggestions btw

I am having this same issue, on any server my mic is cutting out but on discord and other games its fine. Any fix?

Hi, have you found a fix for this yet?

I havent yet unfortunately… its really annoying and makes me not even want to play.

Same here I’ve tried everything I can think of(even resetting my pc). I’m just thinking to deal with it. plus it only happened less than a week ago.

Any solution about this?

Once anyone finds a cause that’s reproducible, maybe this can get solved.

I’m having the same issue. I’m beginning to think it’s packet losses on the way to the actual server we’re connecting to. I didn’t think that was a thing 2021 but when I do speedtests from EU and it turns out that to some areas in NA there’s huge packet losses. Mainly Texas and California.

It suddenly got fix for me somehow on the server i am playing. I think it depends on what server we are playing and our connection to that server. Or maybe it’s related to Discord or something because my server is making me connected to my discord to login and during the time i’m having trouble with my mic is the same time i’m having trouble with my discord. Go connect to connect “https://fivem.net/” with a friend and see if your mic is working fine there, if yes then it’s server related issue as well and maybe try contacting your admin if he can do something about it.
