I guess you need a daemon like smcroute
www.cschill.de/smcroute/ was OK on 2.6s last time I tried.
I only ever did enough with multicast routing to get what I wanted
working, so don't know all the ins and outs, but for locally generated
traffic it seems that the interface with the mcast route will get it.
Maybe it's because I was comparing pppX and ethX rather than eths, but
by default local generated mcast would go out on ppp0(default route
created by pppd) which was not what I wanted, doing -
ip ro add dev br0 188.8.131.52/4
stopped it going out on ppp0 - Maybe what you see is because tcpdump
puts ethX into promisc or something.
