Off the top of my head I'd recommend:

JUSB: http://jusb.sourceforge.net/
 -- for usb camera communication

JXTA: http://www.jxta.org/
 -- P2P layer for Java

Tomcat: http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat
 -- If you need a central point of access for your comms

There is a Java Jabber Server: http://open-im.net/
 -- Jabber is a well defined IM protocol...
You will find a complete code in JAVA of how to manage a chat room from the 17th chapter of the book "Java How To Program - Deitel & Deitel"(Fourth edition). From the following link you can download all the example code of the book..

For the video part, you can use Morena 6.1 which gives the API for the real time video processing from any Twain compatible Image Acquisition device. To download Morena 6.1, use the following link.
