IGMP Snooping

You can enable IGMP snooping to use the multicast functions on the router.

IGMP Snooping listens to the IGMP protocol package, extracts the corresponding information, establishes and maintains the layer 2 multicast forwarding publication, and then forwards the multicast group data to the host that joins the multicast group, while other hosts cannot receive the multicast group data.

IGMP V3 is compatible with v1 and v2, you can try v3 first and change it if you find any problem.
