Get Icon Data

I've managed to extract the url of a favicon on the web, but now I
need to extract the image data to produce something like


I can read the binary data just fine using file_get_contents() but
that's not what I need... does anyone know how to extract the data of
an image like that? I can't even seem to get the mime type, and
reading the file contents as text doesn't produce a string like that
either... it's all just weird characters.  I want to pass that data
into <object data="here" />.

I guess it should have been obvious that it was encoded in base64
(just figured that out).  But still, how can I get the mime type?
