ActiveX is an Object-oriented technology programming and tool developed by Microsoft to facilitate the media playback in the Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer implies ActiveX to stack other applications into the browser. The modules of ActiveX are known as Controls and are similar to Java applets. The ActiveX controls extend the functionality of the browser and allow doing those tasks which it cannot be done natively with the help of a plugin.
The controls of ActiveX are employed to play multimedia content and videos directly in the browser without opening the required media player. It also supports PDF files and flash animations.
