You mean http://wiki.videolan.org/ActiveX/HTML, right?

You should just be able to embed the HTML from that page into a new
HTML document, open the document in IE, and IE will automatically ask
you to install the ActiveX control.  You will, however, have to change
"latest" in the codebase URL to "0.8.6c" for it to work.  Is it still
not working for you?
