Does Ghost Multicast work on campus?

Multicast is enabled within each individual VLAN (although multicast routing for inter-VLAN traffic is not necessarily configured), so Ghost should work if server and clients are in the same VLAN. The Networking group has found that Ghost multicast doesn’t seem to be in full accordance with the IETF standards and even vendor documentation is incorrect in terms of how it works (compared to what we’ve seen with packet traces). Ghost Multicast is inconsistent and works sometimes, but not always.
