Have you looked at the existing Video Chat activity [1,4] already?
Writing a video chat activity is (surprisingly?) a non-trivial task;
there have been several (announced [2] and real [1,3,4]) prototypes so
far, but nothing that can be used by deployments or individual
users. It would be much more helpful to fix up the existing code [5]
rather than starting yet another prototype that will get abandoned
before it's ready for the masses.

Others have already pointed out the best available resources. If you
need further information, feel free to ask questions on
sugar-devel [6].
