I want to limit the upload bandwidth of a P2P live video program, which is closed source, in Linux.

I don't want to use tc because I don't have root access. There is a tool called trickle, but unfortunately it doesn't handle UDP (the P2P program mainly uses UDP).

Is there any other way to throttle bandwidth of a program in Linux?

You can use force_bind to set the bandwidth. Check the README file for an example.
