OK, I have an embedded media player with the usual controls (play/pause, volume, full-screen mode, and track progress bar).

Does anyone know of a way to read the user's current volume level using Java? I don't mean the user's system volume or the volume on the physical knob of their speakers, but the on-screen player's volume setting (for an embedded JW WMV player, to be specific). I want to have Java effects for my page that are volume-dependent. It seems like this should be possible but my googling so far has been fruitless.

I was torn between posting here and posting in the Java section, but I figured I'd start here.
