[vlc-devel] VLC AX opens new framed desktop window instead of playing inside the host application's window

Hi! I'm new to this list and VLC development in general and run into the 
following problem:

When embedded into Zinc (http://www.multidmedia.com/software/zinc), the 
VLC ActiveX control opens a new, framed desktop window with title bar 
and everything right before starting playback of a video stream.

The window is of class "VLC DirectX video" and has the title "VLC 
(hardware YUV overlay DirectX output)"

I guess this is because the Zinc COM Container is somehow, let's say, 
not the best on earth and doesn't suport in-place activation. But I 
don't have hard facts about this yet.

Just wanted to ask, if somebody has some ideas about this before diving 
deeper into VLC sources.
