    webcam chat

    I'm looking into the possibility of adding a new chat with webcam capabilities.

    I'd like it to be customisable and able to use with my data from mysql.


    I did a search on google and noticed a lot of sites charge a monthly/annually fee
    but I don’t think this is what I want. Obviously I like it to be cheap as possible but
    I don’t mind paying a one off price but
    I like to have total control so I’m not relying on a 3rd party site.

    I imagine it will have to involve a java or flash

    Any advice on how I can achieve this

    This is the JavaScript forum. Java and Javascript are entirely different programming languages, in spite of the confusingly similar names. Javascript is purely a client-side language and is not capable of doing what you want.

    using mysql will most likely require server software like php, jsp, asp, etc.
    flash will be needed to use webcams.

    google wave is free, and can build javascript text-based chat services.
    if you don't want to rely on outside services, you'll need your own server setup.
