Yes the best thing would be you send unicast over the internet to avoid the additional overhead and complexity (although quite minor) of GRE. Then once at destination you "convert" to multicast as needed. I don't think the router will do this for you and I'm unsure what would be the right device, but certainly there are.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!

Hi Saran

If you have to stick to stringent SLA parameters like latency etc., then i would suggest for a private leased circuit.

But you need to consider whether you are going to have continuous traffic over the link or going to be on periodic basis..
