Hi @interfacedy ,

VLC can be used as a multicast streaming client and/or server.

Hi @interfacedy ,

Yes VLC can be configured to receive multicast traffic via IGMP. Streaming is often used to refer to video traffic.

Thanks for your reply.

@Harold Ritter Why VLC can be used as multicast straming client/or server? Its becasue it can produce something like igmp?

One more question: why we call it as steaming instead of traffic?

BTW, traditionally, any host can send multicast.  Literally, all a hosts needs to do is transmit the multicast.

Keeping multicast from "flooding" all the same L2 domain switch links, and/or, routing it between L3 networks, can be considerable more involved.  Again, though, a multicast sending host, might not need to do anything beyond transmitting its multicast packets.

Hosts desiring to receive a multicast stream, also, is more involved.
