If IGMP snooping active? If so, does client request the correct multicast stream? Is there a IGMP querier on the segment?

Yes the issue was IGMP Snoop default behaviour. It was enabled by default and there was no qurier on the segment. I am not able to make the switch as a qurier (might be image problem) once I removed ip igmp snooping, the Multicast stream is reaching every where....
