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.

Collecting a logcat

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).

Reporting a bug

There are some basic informations which are required to resolve the problem as soon as possible.
  1. Device Manufacturer & Model :
  2. Android Version :
  3. Rom Info: Stock/Custom Rom details
  4. Detailed Problem Description :

  5. Steps to reproduce the problem :


  6. Bug Report and Sample videos have to be attached if it's required.



If you can't upload or post link due to forum restriction, you can share your files in any public sharing sites like Dropbox, Google Drive. You can share the links in the posts using mask

Eg:
h**ps://www.dropbox.com/s/tkkhws0pynbioxsb/sample.txt

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