    Best ActiveX Component?

    I am interested in streaming video from a web cam into window inside a dialog box, MFC based stuff. I have been playing around with building web browsers using the prebuilt activeX component with Visual C++ 6.0 and was wondering if anyone had some advice on what components I might use for streaming video. I would like it to be real time feeds so I can see what passes in front of the camera in dialog program.

    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks-

    cool, thanks for the tip. wow 4 streams at once, that sounds brutal! I think your challenge is worse than mine. Many reviews, few responses, to this so I appreciate your time.

    I posted in the wrong area, hope I did not offend anyone....

    Thanks again, I will research your tip! Hope your project goes well, I would be interested in hearing your results.
