Programmatically pull video and audio from 2100?

Where would I find docs on writing my own program to pull video and audio from the 2100+.

I would like to use the 2100 in my application, which works now with IIDC cameras. There is a cool program out there for the Mac ( that works for video (not audio--I believe).

I am not certain on the HTML embedded object--that makes me think it is a ActiveX control or Java Applet they provide.

Any ideas?

It's an ActiveX component... works in IE only :-(

But as to the original question, does anyone know how to programatically get the audio from these cameras?

Capturing images isn't too much of a hassle. http://{USER_ID}:{PASSWORD}@{CAMERA_IP}/cgi-bin/video.jpg

[taken from PySoft Active Webcam software, but they do not have the link / login details for audio.

Isn't the audio embedded in the video stream? So if you can pull the video stream programatically, you should be able to get to the audio as well.

Maybe the software from is used with cameras with video only and as such does not support audio. Is it open source by any chance so that you can modify it?
