I found the problem, I searched my drive for all occurrences of librtmp
I found one at "/usr/local/lib/librtmp.so.0" and another at

"/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/librtmp.so.0" was an old copy from over a year ago
"/usr/local/lib/librtmp.so.0" was the newest

I deleted "/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/librtmp.so.0" then symlinked it to the
one at "/usr/local/lib/librtmp.so.0"
"sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/librtmp.so.0

Now rtmpdump works properly
