Multicast traffic to non-multicast devices

Is there any way I can make non-multicast supporting(They cant send IGMP Joins) devices to receive multicast traffic?

Yes, sometimes there is an interface command that will pull multicast (i.e. it acts like there's a host desiring that multicast stream on that interface).  (I'm sure you would like to know the command, but I forget what it is - someone else will likely post it.)

Also, though, you may need to disable IGMP snooping, if supported, on host's switch, otherwise a IGMP snooping switch will block the multicast to the port.

Thanks for the reply Joseph. I have explained scenario in the below link probably in a better way,
