I'm afraid the Messenger COM interface was restricted from being directly accessible in web
pages as a security restriction, so you can't do the old Netmeeting ActiveX trick.
This thread isn't clear as to exactly what you've seen, so I'll list everything...
There is the IM Control which allows text-chat from a web page: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb936682.aspx
And a way to do presence on its own if necessary: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb936691.aspx
Of course none of these are going to do voice/video, which I have a feeling you're really
after. The only real way that's going to be accomplished is using the real client itself.
Although Messenger provides some protocol handlers to call voice/video from hyperlinks,
that's about all you can do from a web page at this point.
The two handlers for these functions are:
There's also "chat" and "add".
