Video record user screen on clicking a button in ASP.NET webform RRS feed

    As soon as a user logs in to a website, his screen should automatically be video recorded. This should happen without the user having to click any button or seeing any application screen that captures screen. When he logs out or closes the webpage or browser, recording should stop and the video file should be saved on the server. 
       I went through many forums and got to know that using ASP.Net it is not possible to capture screen. ActiveX control should be written which should be called in the webform. I got a winforms application to record screen and save it at a particular location. But, how do I convert it to ActiveX control and invoke the control in a ASP.Net webform as per my requirement?
    What I have tried:
    I created a ActiveX control with two buttons and added the ActiveX control to the website. Added two buttons to the webform and on clicking the buttons wrote a javascript which would simply call click event of the buttons in ActiveX control. Nothing happened. I am creating ActiveX for the first time. In my website I want the ActiveX button click events to be automatically called without user having to do anything. 
      We are adding this feature to montior employee screen. In case employee is taking long to complete a priority task manager could later check the video to know if he was really working or not.

    Active-X only runs in IE, not other browsers, and only if the user explicitly allows it.  Default is to block it.

    Why do you want to record a website visitor's screen?   I would not allow that from any website.  My computer screen contains a lot more than the website being visited, and you should have no access to that.

    I see that your post now says this is for employees.   In that case, can't you install software on work computers that monitor employee actions?  For example: https://www.pcmag.com/roundup/357211/the-best-employee-monitoring-software
