So I'm trying to edit this pre-made mp4 file that I downloaded from youtube, however only a few seconds of the audio is showing up. it also might be important to note that it sounds choppy and bugs out before it finally cuts off. As you can see in the screenshot I uploaded the audio is there in the project preview but cuts off short in the timeline. I have also confirmed that the audio in the file is working by testing the file in QuickTime player. not sure if I'm just being dumb or if this is some sort of glitch. But yea, any suggestions on how to fix or even work around this would be helpful.
Use Adobe Media Encoder to transcode the clip to a good intermediate codec with good audio. I like Quicktime movies in Photo JPEG, Animation, PNG or ProRes 422 codecs.
that did the trick thanks buddy
