    Hi,

    I just am wondering what is possible w/ the iPad2. Is it possible with an objective-C app to:

    1) Take a photo with the camera and send it somewhere via HTTP post?
    2) Record video with the camera and send it somewhere via HTTP post?
    3) Stream live video from the camera to another iPad2 user (in otherwords, make my own video chat app)?

    thanks.

    Is there any documentation / tutorials out there that would help me with the process of building my own video chat app?

    Have you done any app development before?

    If not, there's a great free resource...

    If you go to iTunes, then 'iTunesU', then 'Universities and Colleges', then select Stanford University and scroll right through their courses you'll see there's a two-part lecture series - each part is 25 lectures - that shows you how to develop iPad apps - yes, 50 hours of lectures from one of the best universities in the world and it's all completely free.

    Hi,

    Yeah I have done some development on the iPhone.. I just have not done anything with chats or streaming video before, so I was hoping for a point in the right direction with regard to that...
