Multicast traffic destined to a multicast MAC address, Only routers enabled multicast routing protocol can be member of this multicast MAC addresses and receive the traffic and do multicast routing. Non-multicast routers will drop the multicast packets at the layer2 itselft.

Yep, there are various multicast routing protocol. To enable multicast, in the global configuration mode you have to give ip multicast-routing...Rest of the configuration is depend upon the routing protocol you choose
