Dont worry. It doesn't affect anything else on your computer

Boss asked you a difficult question?

Bufferi.ng will also stutter and glitch your sound.

It works on Zoom, Skype, Microsoft Teams and any other video chat program.

How it works

1.

First, you need to install a piece of software called Snapcam on your pc/mac. It is made by snapchat. Don't worry you don't need an account. Follow the instructions here ϊ

Once it's up and running search for the 'too many meetings' filter.

mental health protection

Take back control of Zoom meetings.

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.

Social Cues

That's much harder online- the tools are too crude to pick up on the all the subtleties of tone and body-language that say:
"You need to shut up".

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?

Fight Back

Bufferi.ng gives you a simple way to stutter your webcam and distort the sound

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.
