Sending/Receiving multicast diagrams.
This sample shows how to send and receive multicast socket diagrams in local network from Chrome apps. It joins the multicast socket group 188.8.131.52 and listens on port 3038.
To support multicast socket messaging in your local network requires the support of your router. The connectivity of this app varies depending on the network configuration.
Warning: This is a simple chatting app demonstrating the usage of multicast socket Chrome app API. It is not designed for reliable communication. Privacy and reachability of the message is NOT guaranteed. It is also possible that a user is able to send to another user while not being able to receive from the latter.
