Can a host receive data from multiple multicast sources after IGMP snooping is configured on an S series switch

With IGMP snooping configured, the Layer 2 switch listens to and analyzes IGMP packets exchanged between multicast users and the upstream router, and creates Layer 2 multicast forwarding entries accordingly. Multicast data packets are then forwarded based on the Layer 2 multicast forwarding entries, instead of being broadcast on the Layer 2 network.
Layer 2 multicast is irrelevant to the number of multicast sources. For S series switches excluding the S1700, to enable IGMP snooping in VLAN 10, perform the following configurations:
[HUAWEI] igmp-snooping enable //Enable IGMP snooping globally.
[HUAWEI] vlan 10
[HUAWEI-vlan10] igmp-snooping enable //Enable IGMP snooping in VLAN 10.
