Description (partial)

Multicast groups not being load balanced over multiple ECMP paths despite the command:

router pim
  multipath hash source-nexthop


router pim
  multipath hash source-group

The source or the groups have the same Most Significant Byte (MSB).  The hashing function when using source-nexthop or source-group only uses the MSB for the hash.
