    The (really) basic approach I'd take in any language would be:
    1. Establish connection with peer
    2. Start image capture and push thread
    3. Start chat thread
    4. Grab images from other side as they're pushed over and display them
    In any case, to create a video chat in Perl would be a lot of work. Is there a reason you can't use existing software?

    Simple Answer: You can do anything in Perl you can do in C, the problem is, you need to choose the best tool for the job. C++ would probably be a better choice to write such a tool.

    My code doesn't have bugs, it just develops random features.
