I take two video clips and combine using Photoshop CS6. The clips have audio that can be heard if I play them through bridge. No camera audio in Photoshop. How do I get the camera recorded audio tnto my edited video?

Hi Alan,
My apologies for missing your post earlier.

There are multiple places in the Timeline where the audio volume/mute can be set;
the main Mute/Unmute Audio button in the timeline, the Mute Audio checkbox in the video pop-up, and the volume control in the same pop-up.

Which camera?

There are a few digital cameras that encode with Dolby Digital AC-3 audio, which Photoshop currently cannot decode due to licensing. (some Sony Cybershots)

There are also a few cameras that give the user the option to shoot in two different formats, one of which has the Dolby Digital AC-3 audio (Leica D-Lux)

Finally, quite a few video cameras encode their audio with Dolby Digital AC-3.

Please let us know if you were able to resolve the issue.
Also, it'd be helpful to know which camera/video camera you were using.

Thank you,

You can transcode the file to use a different audio codec:

thank you for replying,i have down loaded a MTS TO MOV converter,i just wish lightroom and photoshop were the same in this regard so you can transfer video across both platforms without problems,suprised adobe hasn`t sorted this out yet
