Does anyone now if we can activate the multicast option of the SDK v3 on linux OS ? the AccessManager Tool is not available on Linux.

Thanks to anyone by advance !

I also did not found way to use multicast on linux.
Access Manager tool just sets key in windows registry (HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\NDI\Multicast\Send)
Sender application read from this key params to set multicast IP and mask. Then on initial client connect
sender app sends metadata frame with next XML:


<ndi_multicast>
<stream type="vmclq" address="%s" id="%s"/>
<stream type="vmchq" address="%s" id="%s"/>
<stream type="amc" address="%s" id="%s"/>
</ndi_multicast>

So, client can use multicast IP to receive data.
Linux(MacOSX) library does not contain any symbols like I saw in windows dll. So, seems to me - not implemented yet.
