Using multicast on Windows with multiple NICs

A little trick I use to make sure I am getting the multicast on the right interface.

  1. Open cmd as administrator (right click run as administrator)
  2. Delete the default multicast routes. > route delete 224.0.0.0 mask 240.0.0.0
  3. Add the route to the NIC you want. >route add 224.0.0.0 mask 240.0.0.0 <IP of NIC>

You could always get more fancy if you had different multicast feeds on different networks but mine all live on one.
