Yes with the use of ActiveX Controls is an easier and quicker way to embed video streams into Citect SCADA display pages.
The selection of an ActiveX control will depend on the camera and/or formatting video type that you want to play.
Whether you want to stream video already archived into your hard drive or you want to have an online video camera installed
in field, you should first select the
appropriate ActiveX control for the specific video format you are wanting to play or the one that is
compatible with the camera that you are installing (video cameras will
include specific installation software).

The following ActiveX controllers should be of help:

a) Windows media player ActiveX control,: you can play different types of video extensions including the windows  
proprietary ones (ASF, ASX, WM, WMA, WAX,WMV and WVX).

b) QuickTime Simple ActiveX control:, you can play the most common formats found i.e. (MP3, MIDI, MPG and WAV).
Keep in mind that if the ActiveX control you need is not listed in the Citect graphics builder, you can always register it using the
Microsoft Registration tool regsvr32.
