Hi

I am making a website for someone who wants to involve a video chat feature. I have no idea where to start. I imagine there are 2 possible approaches:

-using some existing video chat forum software
-building my own

I am interested in knowing what technology this sort of application would need so that I understand the area. For example, what software does my website need so that it can detect if the person viewing the webpage has a webcam installed and switched in. How does the website get the feed from the webcam and display it in a web browser. I am also assuming the user will be using a microphone to so I need to incorporate both sound and video.

I guess I am looking for an overview so I know where to get started researching as I'm not getting very far on my own

thanks a lot
andrea
