Some resources i found:

Testing and Verifying an IPv6 Based Multicast Network

I WANT MY MTV – IP Multicast Design Pitfalls

VLC – ipv6 multicast streaming

Multicat – multicast and transport stream manipulation

cstream – a general-purpose streaming tool

Darwin streaming server –  and Ipv6 patch

Multicast Videoconferencing

Access grid – based on RAT / VIC

DVTS – multicast streaming

channel reflector sources

ECMH – multicast router for linux

MDR6 – multicast router

SSMPING – multicast ping protocol

LookingGlass for IPv4/IPv6

Porting applications to Ipv6 – thanks to Jeroen Massar, Jörg Zinke and Eva M. Castro
