    You can use the plugin Xam.Plugins.VideoPlayer from Nuget .

    If you're asking this question, you're not ready to do it yet. Sorry it's the truth. I would say you're 1 to 2 years minimum away from making an audio/video chat app that just works. To create a GOOD audio/video chat app, you need 3-4 years.

    Now can you just make your way by asking code here, googling, copying/pasting from StackOverflow?

    Yes. You have a (small) chance to do it if you know how to Google correctly, which is btw a key skill every developer should have, yet only few seem to have it, according to the daily repetitive questions we see in these forums.

    Will you become a better developer or learn something?

    No. You would be a worse developer, since you will believe that you can always make your way like this, thus holding you from learning.
