Thanks for your response, I think I encountered one of

today while I was running some tests. I guess there are just some slow
ones in every group.
I met with some network analysts from my university today and they
explained how since the network is operating on a mixed CGMP/IGMPv2
environment multicasts are sometimes flaky. So, now that I may have found
a source of the problem my question is if any has any experience using
udpcast in a mixed environment, and if so what steps they took to make
udpcast more reliable. And also if there is a version of udpcast that uses
IGMPv2 rather than IGMPv3.

Since today, there is now a new checkbox in cast-o-matic to fall back to
"Fall back to IGMPv2 (needed for some CISCO equipment)"
