Does MakeMKV write a log?

Post by russellbateman » Mon Jan 21, 2019 5:32 pm

If so, where does it live. I can't find anything. It would be useful to know if MakeMKV had already finished transcribing from a disc should I find my computer host crashed and wonder whether to restart the transcription or not. Could be useful for other reasons too like asking questions in this forum.

Thanks.

If you enable debug logging (FAQ link in my signature says how to do it), it will write a log. The location of the log file will be included in the opening display of the bottom window of the display.

I've turned on Debug Logging, stopped and restarted the application. Even though "DEBUG" messages have been showing up in the log windows, I'm not seeing anything that indicates the location of the log file. Can you please provide the location of the log files?

When you start MakeMKV, the log window should show something like:

Code: Select all

MakeMKV v1.14.7 win(x64-release) started
Debug logging enabled, log will be saved as C:\Users\XXXXXXXXXX/MakeMKV_log.txt
