Simple multicast sender
A simple component for sending data to a multicast group.
Remember that multicast is an unreliable connection - packets may be lost, duplicated or reordered.
Multicasting a file to group address 184.108.40.206 on port 1000 (local address 0.0.0.0 port 0):
Pipeline( RateControlledFileReader("myfile", rate=100000), Multicast_sender("0.0.0.0", 0, "220.127.116.11", 1000), ).activate()
Data sent to the component's "inbox" inbox is sent to the multicast group.
This component ignores anything received on its "control" inbox. It is not yet possible to ask it to shut down. It does not terminate.
This component never emits any signals on its "signal" outbox.
Multicast_sender(local_addr, local_port, remote_addr, remote_port) -> component that sends to a multicast group.
Creates a component that sends data received on its "inbox" inbox to the specified multicast group.
