After I Import a video into Premiere Pro the audio is slower than normal. I was able to fix this by speeding it up to 900%, but I only have a few seconds of audio because most of it was cut off. So my question is, how can I stop the audio from getting slowed down?

-WITH Exactly which version of Premiere Pro
-WITH exactly what are the codec details of what you are editing, and were did you get the file?
What is the source of your footage?
Mobile phones, Screen capturing applications & Web Cams often use Variable Frame Rate recording, which is not ideal for use in Premiere. This could affect the quality of the final output due to frame rate conversion.
I have seen multiple cases where users experience audio sync issue with variable frame rate material.
Some users will convert the variable rate footage to a fixed/constant frame rate using the free HandBrake software before importing and editing in Premiere.
I can confirm that using Handbrake to re-encode the footage whether it's constant framerate or peak [variable framerate), works just fine. This issue has happened a few times for me now on different versions of premiere and I was able to get it to work. My issue was everything played fine everywhere else, except the most important place I needed it to, PREMIERE PRO..my audio played 200% slow. when i sped it up, it was now cut off...
..now to vent a little bit on Premiere Pro...why does a free software like Handbrake help us fix severe footage problems yet an expensive SUBSCRIPTION to Adobe cannot fix the problem?
Thanks! And why does a free software like Handbrake help us fix severe footage problems yet an expensive SUBSCRIPTION to Adobe cannot fix the problem? /2
Actually every application tried could fix the sound problem but Premiere...and they want my money? Yeah sure...dream on
This worked for me. The content i imported had normal video but the audio was both slowed down and pitched down. I just put the video into HandBrake and set the Audio settings to "AAC" with the bitrate at "256"
Yeah, downloaded some IG TV footage that played great on the PC but imported with sound like a newly-awoken (and hungover) Barry White. So I kept the video in Premiere Project but unlinked the audio and video then deleted the bogus audio track. I then went outside Premiere and converted the otherwise kosher MP4 to only MP3 (you can do this on-line quickly & freely) and dropped that usable audio only track into my timeline right below the related video track. Being the same size they were e-z to line-up....
I had the same exact issue importing a 17min clip from IGTV! haha I even tried converting the clip to audio straight in Adobe Encoder and it still came out slow/distorted. Tried 2 diff computers, Mac/PC, AE, Premier, Audition, stereo, mono, mp3, wav, checked my sound drivers and all. The online converter thing worked by uploading the same content I downloaded to the converter site so it's gotta be an Adobe issue.
sameee exact thing happened to me!! the igtv footage
Tiktok videos have the same problem too.

I agree. MPC, HandBrake, VLC, Avidemux and other software plays the audio just fine, but Premiere somehow has a smooth brain and can't handle/convert the audio properly.
It could be some encoding issue, try using FFMpeg to re-encode the audio file:
Still an issue in 2020 (if Phineask12's post was in 2017??). Bung into Handbrake, fix the frame rate, import to prem, sorted. Prem as a paid-for industry class software really aught to have this as an in-built feature/service vs me using a freeware prior.
I imported the audio to Audacity and then exported it as a .wav file and that worked for me. Honestly ridiculous that opensource software fixes this when I pay a subscription for Adobe!

This is an absolute disgrace that this has not been updated! Adobe is one of the leaders in the game and it charges so much! Seriously, this needs to be fixed!
How is this still a problem? Having an issue today March 1 2021. I'm actually losing my whole day for what should have been 10-minute project. What exactly am I paying for?
Anytime I've ran into this issue I just convert the file to .mp4 using Handbrake. I'm not sure why this free program can handle it better than Adobe, but once it's converted you'll have a working source file to edit! Deff recommended! https://handbrake.fr/
Can confirm using Handbreak (free software) converting the tiktok/IGTV file to MP4 will go around the issue when importing to premier... Thanks Roy!
hey everyone - i am working on a project which is combined lots of different phone clips, i've got frame rates all over the shop from 23.99 (seemingly audio is fine), 24.03 (is slowed down), 29.42 seemed to be working, one at 30fps is fine, one at 30fps is slowed down - seems random. I have tried converting these in encoder and hand brake, into MP4, MP3, Wav, for some reason it's not fixing any of them at all. Is there something I could be doing? Would be unbelievably grateful if anyone could help me get to the bottom of this! Thanks 🙂
Nevermind - have just figured it out, for anyone else having this problem the fix was 'On the video tab both check the CFR box and set a specific number frame-rate. Set "level" to 4.2 and compression to near placebo.'
This is seriously so annoying! Come on Adobe... please fix this problem.
I too am having this issue with Tiktok videos in Premiere 2020, however not in Premiere 2019. It's very annoying, it's the only reason I keep both version installed, but I'd rather not!
