Hello,

For the last 45 mins I have been trying to go through the previous threads but found nothing related to what i was looking for.

My question is as follows :

Is Java the right language to make a video telephony / Video conferencing / video online meeting software like Skype ?

Will Java be able to take care of "Real time communication" issue , delay, lag and latency issues so that it doesn't effect the end user experience.

Will additional Java abstraction layer wont be a hindrance in giving a good user experience.

Thanks

There are so many video conferencing solutions out there already, why do you feel the need to write a new one?

for my learning purpose only. Plan is to create one ..maybe a basic type and over a period of time refine it / optimize it and pick up knowledge on the way.

That's the sole purpose.

I assume there's Skype for Android, and I assume it's written in Java. It would have a tiny weak processor and lots of things that might help you like JavaFX would be absent. So...
