Overwhelmed by pointless video-chats, conferences and get-togethers? Presenting Bufferi.ng... Now you can deliberately stutter your webcam and glitch your sound. It simulates slow-downs, freeze-frames and lag on your video calls.
Dont worry. It doesn't affect anything else on your computer
Bufferi.ng will also stutter and glitch your sound. It works
on Zoom, Skype, Microsoft Teams and any other video chat program.
Offline communication has evolved over thousands of years. Collectively we've developed thousands of ways to get out of unwanted social situaions: To politely indicate someone is talking too much or wasting everyone's time.

In an always-on world of constant contact excuses are hard to come by - it's not like you've got somewhere to be.
So what to do? How to cut short the motormouth boss? get out of the pointless meeting? avoid the weird relative?
Bufferi.ng gives you a simple way to stutter your webcam and distort the sound

This fastidious guard knocked-off work at 6pm and was replaced by a...
The moral of the story:
The more useless your job, The busier you need to appear.
Working from home has increased productivity and job satisfaction for many.
Many managers are becoming obsolete as workers self direct and coordinate projects online. They need to show they are essential and are creating busy work:
So now we have a glut of useless, soul crushing meetings
That's why I created bufferi.ng. Now you can control when your camera lags and stutters and cut your sound out.
