I have a doubt about multicast.
Multicast SEVER -- R1 -- R2 -- R3 -- PC1
From Above diagram , suppose PIM-SM is enabled on all the Routers and let us assume that R2 will be the RP.
If Multicast server sends a stream to 18.104.22.168 group , Then how does PC1 aware that it should join to that particular group .
For Example , If Multicast server sends "youtube" stream with some video-1 , so when I type the same URL in my PC1 , how it can able to covert that URL (youtube/video-1) to perticular multicast address ?
Who will do this conversions ?
Can anyone clarify this ?
