Some years ago one developer told me that he tried(?) to do a Quicktime 
Plugin (maybe thats not the right word, maybe extension). So that would 
also give nice platform-compatibility. Not sure if this is (still) possible.

About Active-X: We really used it inside Powerpoint to visualize some 
realtime data ;-)

Beside the ActiveX thing (which can also lead to more problems, like who 
signs the activex etc.) I think Firefox/Mozilla is a great start.
