I realize this is late, but .... did you try this?

sudo iptables -t nat -A OUTPUT -p tcp --dport 1935 -m owner \! --uid-owner usernamexx -j REDIRECT
sudo su usernamexx

The simple shell scripts are really just commands that you would normally type into a shell prompt.

Of course, there are coding techniques to make the script "smarter" or more bullet proof, but those aren't needed for something this small.

The only changes I'd make would be to parametrize the username and to specify the full path to programs called like rtmpsuck. Trusting a PATH is dangerous and considered poor form - though on a single-user system, it will usually work.


$SUDO $IPT -t nat -A OUTPUT -p tcp --dport 1935 -m owner \! --uid-owner $USER -j REDIRECT


It might be nice to setup sudo for these specific commands to not require a password too. The sudo and sudoers man pages explain how-to clearly.

Sorry for the delay. It has been one of the roughest weeks of my life and there are very few things that can happen which will be worse in the future.

I skimmed the other thread - I don't think the last answer about running all the commands as sudo understands that setup you are trying to accomplish. It is important that the rtmpsuck command NOT be run as root/sudo.

OTOH, it could be very helpful to remove the iptables rule when you are completed. That would be better than rebooting the box every time, right?

np ,thanks for being here to answer my questions this become much easier
yes i remove the rule with sudo iptables -t nat -F :popcorn:i would use rtmpdump over rtmpsuck but it never worked for me

In my searches, it appears that most people use the highly manual method of rtmpdump for some reason. I guess rtmpsuck doesn't work for their needs? For me, it seems 1000x easier, but to each their own.

yes rtmpdump is the typical tool for this task rtmpsuck used much more when someone trying to find the source of video feed while playing it on browser .. of course the website must support this protocol "rtmp" ,both tools are good and does help u to download live shows :D
