I would call the Cisco sales line and ask them this question.  1-800-553-6387.   They should be able to give you the definitive answer on this.

Yes.

Here is a matrix showing support for those IOS versions:

Almost all Cisco routers support multicast forwarding. The specific IOS version will determine what versions of IGMP and/or CGMP are supported. For example, the 10.3 2501 may not support IGMPv3, but if you're dealing with an IGMPv1 network, there should be no problem. If you can bump the 2501 up to 11.2, that would be nice, but not a necessity.
