Anybody knows a free solution - a chat with webcam image + rooms (and private talks)?
If there isn't any free maybe you would recommend something?

php it's not recomanded for this. not as a stand alone language.
you need ajax to makeit interactive
it is a free version of a chat but not with webcam.

the problem is with the webcam.

the webcam can be reach only from flash (as i know)
the php it's a server side script and you need to get a client resource

so with php for sure you will not find a solution

with flash you can try this maybe - http://www.123flashchat.com/video-chat.html

AndyPSV,

Just to clarify PHP could be part of this solution.  Although it is correct that Flash is a common way to provide this a PHP page can load the Flash object.   AJAX is just a method of using clientside script to send server requests so it also does not exclude PHP.  In the case of a video chat I have not seen a AJAX solution that is the key component but won't say it couldn't be useful for part of the solution.  Besides Flash a Java applet is also a common way to provide something like this.  With Flash or Java (or similar technologies) then usually AJAX is unneeded.  Those technologies are used to provide the same effect as AJAX.

I don't have a specific recommendation for you.  Not that is free, provides video, has rooms, etc.  Let me know if any of this is optional because that may make a difference.  When I have seen these solutions (i.e. video) they are built customized or cost money to buy.

Can it be hosted by another site?

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.  I just wanted to mainly clarify some of the info above.
