Most probably your camera produce codec like "pcmu" and this is why you don't hear any sound. Nimble Transcoder can convert audio to aac/mp3.
If you cannot sort it please contact us via

In outgoing section it shows stream have audio (pcm_mulaw format). Is it cause of no sound?
pcmu = pcm_mulaw?
Are there ip cameras with microphone compatible to stream video and audio through Nimble Stream?

Nimble streamer supports pcm codecs but this codec not supported in hls/dash/rtmp protocols so you cannot hear pcm sound if you try to play your stream using these protocols. You can use Nimble transcoder to convert sound to aac as I previously proposed. That way your stream will play fine. You camera is compatible but produced codec itself not compatible with almost all protocols except rtsp.

It's time to contact us privately via then as I don't see any active transcoder license for your account.
