I have the chat application

What do you have already?   . . .  You don't give us much to go on.

You will most likely want a video chat application that provides voice as well. For this, in pure Java at least, the protocol would be UDP, because TCPIP is far too slow.

Here are some places you can get inspiration :

You seem to be as vague as possible. LAN comms of this degree have been done before, so there are few things to be opaque about.

If you have text chat, (I assume you do from your comment), then you'll know one or two of the wrinkles involved in achieving stability on voice and video.

I can only speak about voice here, which over intranet should be reasonably reliable, but you should use UDP - TCPIP will be too slowwww. You will find it immensely challenging to develop a two-user LAN voip system into a multi-user (multi >=3) system, unless you think about the wider implications thoroughly beforehand.

You need to understand the javax.sound.sampled API pretty well. That's your starting point, in fact.
