How would you implement a video chat application using node.js?
Any resources(tutorials, books, links) or a general gameplan/strategy would be greatly appreciated
Right now there are two Node.js projects for video chat. Both are experimental, but I’ve heard they work quite well if you can get them running.
https://github.com/webRTC/webrtc.io-client => The current champ for chat.
https://github.com/kdomagal/Web-RTC => Only a demo app
There is a Project that aims at these sorts of problems (http://www.webrtc.org/). I would probably stream the video to the server and then to the client, or wait til the P2P API is ready and then implement a P2P version if you have time to wait.
Try my http://peerchat.net it’s a peer to peer open source video chat application.
