When to Use IGMP Snooping

I'm a little confused on IGMP and its utility.


When should one enable it for a residential setting?  Is it beneficial at all?

TL;dr - not necessary for residential or other small networks but it probably won't hurt to turn on if you do.  


However as with most things if you don't need it, don't enable it - complexity just makes troubleshooting things later that much harder Man Happy
