public void Dispose()

Call Dispose when you are finished using the UdpSingleSourceMulticastClient. The Dispose method leaves the UdpSingleSourceMulticastClient in an unusable state. After calling Dispose, you must release all references to the UdpSingleSourceMulticastClient so the garbage collector can reclaim the memory that the UdpSingleSourceMulticastClient was occupying.

Always call Dispose before you release your last reference to the UdpSingleSourceMulticastClient. Otherwise, the resources it is using will not be freed until the garbage collector calls the UdpSingleSourceMulticastClient object's Finalize method.
