I've been searching all over the web and cant seem to find much information about this. Is there a way to stream multicast video to an iOS device? If this is not supported by the built-in iOS video player, are there 3rd party apps that can do it?
Perhaps it is undesirable because there is no guaranteed receipt of the packets as there is with TCP unicast. And wireless is prone to transmission problems. But, I suppose for a live transmission it's no different than tuning into the radio. If you have bad reception, you'll lose data.
