Almost all of the video chat APIs are built on WebRTC these days. That's
an open standard implemented in some (but not all - Safari is notably
absent) of the major browsers. There are native SDKs for mobile
platforms, plugins for older versions of Internet Explorer etc.

It's not currently enabled in the embedded browser in LiveCode (for
desktop platforms) as far as I know.

You certainly could implement WebRTC for LiveCode but it probably makes
more sense to do this as a web app.
