I have a 3rd party ActiveX media player, which is embedded in a C# UserControl to extend its capabilities. The UserControl then needs to be embedded in a webpage servered up by ASP .Net. I can get the media player to work fine in the UserControl,
and I can get the UserControl to embed in the web page when I take out the media player.... but when I try to get the media player in the UserControl in the web page, it does not load correctly.
The ActiveX media player is installed on the machine, and the C# UserControl is installed to the GAC, and its DLLs are also on the server for download.
Anyone have any idea what could be causing this? Thanks in advance.

I guess what you are talking about is the custom server control instead of the user control (.ascx), right? Since how can user control be added into GAC? If so,
a Web page that contains a custom ActiveX control may not load as expected in Internet Explorer due to defense in depth changes introduced in cumulative security update 896688 (MS05-052).

I'm talking about a component that extends System.Windows.Forms.UserControl, which has an ActiveX control embedded in it, and then that UserControl is embedded in a webpage. The problem was that the user control didn't have enough trust to run, so increasing
its trust fixed it.
