Is there an app or tool that can enable websites that require ActiveX in the Android browser?

      I would like to view video surveillance through browser as most apps are not compatible with specific formats of the dvr relaying the video

        Hello, have you tried any of these?  QQeye seems to be outdated.  In the manual for your DVR, does it tell you what kind of software is compatible with it?

          It allows H.264 video format relaying. So an app which is compatible with receiving H.264 video would work. In the manual QQEye and aplayer are mentioned software/apps

          Hello, have you tried the following?  It supports H.264.  This is the free version.  Pro version is also available:

          I have been having problem with android market ( faced with multiple versions , even newest ). The apps get downloaded but get stuck while installing, thus failing to install

          Hello, have you tried any of these other options?

          http://maketecheasier.com/install-applications-without-the-market/2011/01/28

          I guess you can also try clearing the data for android market.  Try the following:

          -- navigate to settings
          -- then applications
          -- select manage applications
          -- select Market
          -- select clear data
          -- restart your phone
          -- try downloading/installing applications

          Have you tried clicking again on the install button? when installation fails?  Also you might try the answer given on the following link about clearing the data on download manager:

          yes I have tried clicking on Installing, but no progress to install takes place

          Even clearing data when clicked doesnt solve installation

          Is there a workaround

          Hello, have you seen/tried the described process in the next link with regards to your installation failures?  Give it a read, maybe it applies to you.

          Have you tried a hard reset in your tablet?

        • Sunil

          Regarding the link , I could not locate the said file in sd card root 

          Also I tried clear cache/data and install on rebooting , but install stuck

          Reset also not resolved the prob

          Can market be incompatible for the device?
          Any other workaround, as local apps are available on market

          Hello, I do not know if you tablet is compatible with market.  What brand and model do you have?

          here is your aplayer :
          http://androiddev.orkitra.com/download/apps/?appid=-2449270575309188852
          both qqeye and aplayer are apple apps also, are you sure you have the right instruction or manual ?

          thanks a lot

          I would check 
           Does it support H.264 video format?

    Short answer: No, ActiveX is a Windows only framework

    However there is a chance that the component (plugin, library, resource) has been released for other platforms too.

    Once you get the ActiveX notification there should be stated which component is being installed and you can then search on Google whether it's available for Android or not.
