Parsing telemetry into plain text?

I’m setting up a PHP script to snag telemetry from qgroundcontrol. I’ve successfully linked in on port 14552, but what is coming through is what appears to be binary / gibberish. Is there a way of getting telemetry parameters in plain text / parsing them into something PHP can turn into string variables? Sorry if this is a newbie question… I’m fairly new to developing for qgc. Thank you!

server is ubuntu linux, but I can easily install windows 10 if I need to.

bump Any ideas on this at all? I really need to pass telemetry off to my php script.
