How To Disable Restream through ffmpeg or Rtmp Dump.

Dear Team,

We need some help regarding re-stream issue. Some of guys are re-streaming our channels through ffmpeg and using their TV box as they use RTMP, File name, SWF url & Page url. We are loosing our bandwidth as well as there are much load on your servers. We want to disable this function so no one will be able to re-stream our channels in this way through different software. Kindly explain us how to do this.

PS: Is there any function that we can disable re-stream through ffmpeg but we can enable push through ffmpeg on wowza server?

Looking forward for your kind & swift response in this regard.

Thank You :slight_smile:
