MULTICAST Problem

Hello everybody,

please help me with my problem:

I have problems with receiving multicast (IGMP) traffic - VLC is not able to see any multicast data stream.
I have only Windows firewall and VLC is allowed in it.
My roommate, who is connected to the same physical switch as me has no problems with it, so it is definitelly problem with my PC.
I do not know which program or service can block IGMP data stream to my computer.

If you can, please help me.
Thank you in advance.

Have you tried disabling Windows Firewall to test if that's the issue?
