Help with my idea

Im looking to create some sort of site similar to omegle. Omegle is a site which allows you to video chat someone random accross the web. Im trying to figure what type of language would be best for programming this in. It would need to get your webcam display it for the other user to see and you would need to be able to see the users webcam

Many thanks, Matt

AFAIK there is no such thing as the best language to do this in, however; if you don't have a lot of experience in web development I would recommend Flask (a python framework). This is a simple and great framework to get started.

There is also a pretty good library (at least so I've heard) that works with Flask to share live video.

Feel free to contact me if you need further help.
