I want to multicast some MPEG-TS streams on my linux server such that the streamed content just be seen on localhost and not sent to the network interface of my system (Clearly stream not routed to the external network). I want to do this for some range of multicast IPs such as 224.11.11.X. I use ubuntu 12.04. I want to know is this possible and how?

The question is unclear. You say you want to "multicast" the streams, which imply sending them to other hosts on a network, but then you say you want that "the streamed content just be seen on localhost and not sent to the network interface of my system." Isn't this a contradiction? –  snacky Jun 17 '13 at 4:03
    
I want to multicast the stream to receive it by multiple transcoders on server. Because number of this transcoders are variable; I don't want to unicast stream for each of them. –  sajad Jun 17 '13 at 14:27
