I must say, I don't think MPlayer folks will be the most thrilled
about ActiveX since it's MSIE-only. If you want to serve movies
embedded in websites you should either use a widely-supported format
that will be played by an ordinary movie-player plugin, or (probably
more reliable) use FLV with a Flash-based player. But we won't do
anything to stop you from making this ActiveX thing as long as you
follow the GPL on the MPlayer part of it. :)
