There is lot of uses still don't know how to collect the logcat & report the problem. From MX Player v1.9.30 & MX Log Collector v1.11 there is a new option to save the logfiles directly to your sdcard to make it easier. This guide is written exclusively cosidering newbies in mind. Hence screenshot is attached for each and every step.

Collecting a logcat:

I. By using MX Player:

  1. Wnen you have the problem/issue (if video is running close the video) Immediately Open Menu either by pressing hardware key or by tapping on the three vertical dots from top right corner.

  3. In the popup window enable "Save to disk" & Press OK. MX Player will save the logs in your primary storage device & will show a toast message with the exact location. (File name will be in the "report_YYYY-MM-DD_HHMMSS.zip" pattern)

II. By using MX Log Collector:

  1. On some occasions you can't even enter into the MX Player. On such case you may required to use MX log collector application to collect the log. It can be even used in normal conditions. It's a very small application which can be downloaded either from playstore or from website.


  2. Just launch the MX Log Collector Application immediately after crash/problem. It will open a popup window like this.

  3. Enable Save to disk & press OK. Similar to the MX Player method, MX Log Collector will save the logs in your primary storage device & will show a toast message with the exact location. (File name will be in the same "report_YYYY-MM-DD_HHMMSS.zip" pattern).

Eventhough some of the basic informations are collected with logs, It will be helpful to resolve the some basic issues without looking at the log files if you can post the basic informations in the report itself.
