    The short answer is no. The long answer is, it is possible however you must open a malicious file they send you. A Trojan could allow remote access to the computer and can access the webcam. It is also possible without opening a malicious file but it would require you to open a link they sent that could exploit a vulnerability in your computer. But without a comprise into the computer system, the answer is no.

    If it is a video chatroom & you've allowed it before, very.

    If not it would at least ask for permission first.
