Plugin For Headtracking with webcam via FaceAPI

I would like to be able to be able to read the head position (x,y,z) and rotation values (y,p,r) from a webcam using FaceAPI and apply that data to my viewpoint in vizard and I am at a loss as to how to do this.

This video illustrates what I would like to be able to do.

I have found some google code projects that provide this position and orientation data via a socket but I have never worked with sockets before.

I've attached an image of what the socket outputs.

How would I go about either accessing this data from the socket to update the viewpoint, or develop my own faceapi plugin to do this automatically.

Many thanks in advance to those more knowledgeable than myself.
