    I regularely encounter problems with streaming media embedded in a webpage by acitveX controls which looks like typical MS Windows stuff.
    Is there any way to access this media in a Mac webbrowser?

    Your help will be highly appreciated as really enjoy watching television and listening to radio stations from all over the world. Unfortunately this activeX controls thing is spoiling the experience.

    activeX is basically the ability to run an exe file within a web browser, it's can be highly dodgy. I'd suggest avoiding it mac or windowz.

    As it is an exe I doubt it can run on a mac without some sort of eliminator, maybe thats built into IE for mac? But if I was you I'd try to use something else as 9 times out of 10 there's another agenda for using activeX on the Internet.
