For internet installation of the activex plugin, several scenarii are 

1) compile the plugin as standalone, all necessary modules are built-in
    problem: GPL ? bloated application ? crippled VLC

2) include VLC installer along with the Activex Plugin in the CAB file 
(which is required for an internet download), and launch it once 
downloaded, this will also install VLC app and its modules.
    problem: big download !

I would advise for 2) (the installer could be tailored so that only the 
modules are installed)

As for mozilla plugin, 1) should be achievable, but I doubt that 2) 
would work
