Question How to create IPv6 multicast groups?


I have in one network some nodes and I would like to make multicast groups while streaming from one node to the rest of them.

I stream (with VLC player for linux) using the ipv6 multicast address ff02::1, but Id like to create different multicast groups, letting nodes to register them or leave them. Ive searched in Internet how to create and register in ipv6 multicast groups under linux, but I didnt find anything

If somebody knows how to do this or if you know any link which explains it, please, answer me

Thanks a lot in advance!!

Best regards,
