Having Kodi issues? Want help from us? Let us show you how to check log files in Kodi so that you can better help us assist you!
Checking log files in Kodi before you report an issue can give you a better idea of what issues you have and you might even be able to solve them yourself!
If you aren’t aware, Kodi tracks everything you do, from opening add-ons, attempting to stream files, and every keyboard press you make. If you receive an error on the dreaded “check log for more information” error in Kodi, you should know what to do!
The log files in Kodi are saved in a system folder on your computer or Kodi box, but the Indigo Kodi add-on has a nice built-in tool for checking log files in Kodi without leaving the add-on at all. You can launch, view, and troubleshoot your issues right from within Kodi, and even upload a log file if you need to view later (note: this was not working at the time of this post on 04/01).
How to Check Log Files in Kodi
- From the Kodi main menu, navigate to SYSTEM > Add-ons > My Add-ons > Program Add-ons > Indigo. If you don’t have the Indigo Kodi add-on installed yet or want more information on it, click here.
- Click on Log Viewer from the Indigo main screen.
- BOOM. You can now check your log files in Kodi right from this screen. There are options for scrolling up and down, refreshing the log file, and an upload log button.
