    Hi,

    I try to stream IPTV multicast video via AirPort Extreme to VLC on mac. If I connect mac directly to modem it works fine, but if I connect it via LAN cable to Airport Extreme it dosnt work,.. I forward right ports and enable IGMP snooping on router. Is there any other settings?

    AFAIK the Airport Extreme does not support this. From what I've heard IGMP is only to NOT forward the multicast stream so that it does not flood the entire network.

    Real IGMP3 support would mean, that you could choose, that one device, for example on LAN4, would get the multicast packets and that the rest would not be affected. I think you will have to use different hardware for this, sorry :/
