I've been using the IGMP-snooping feature in our Extreme Summit switches for

Now I've bought a HP ProCurve 2650 and I wonder if it is capable of
performing the same thing?
When I "ingest" a multicast stream in a particular VLAN the traffic is
flooded to all ports that belongs to that VLAN (just like the Extreme would
react if I hadn't enabled IGMP-snooping). I would like the HP switch to
forward the multicast stream ONLY on ports where there are hosts really
subscribing to the multicast group.
Is that possible to configure in the 2650? How do I do it?
Yes, it is. You can do something like the example below:
ip address A.B.C.D E.F.G.H
