Video Chat App

I'd like to develop a video chat application that is similar to Skype with my own design ideas, but I do not know how to go about doing this. Can anyone give me some advice on this?

Something like this would be a good place to start. http://developers.bistri.com/2013/07/tutorial-how-to-build-a-simple-video-chat-application-in-a-few-steps/ this took 10 seconds on google to find. You should also state your current skill set in the question and also show a sign of some research done yourself on the question.

Hope the link helps

That was the first link I found when I did my own research and I couldn't make sense of it, which was why I was hoping someone kind enough on this forum would give me other options to explore. I'm just posting this question out of curiosity and plan to work on it in the near future.

Ok. I think your would need an understanding of HTML, CSS, Javascript and PHP to create your own.
