Posting Kodi Error Logs for Troubleshooting (16.1 Jarvis or Below)

If you’re trying to get support or figure out what’s wrong with your Kodi installation, you probably don’t want to even bother asking unless you’ve retrieved your error log for debugging purposes. There’s a function within our Indigo tool that allows you to easily upload your error log to the web so that you can access it on the computer without any technical knowledge.

There’s no point in uploading an error log until you’ve reproduced the error at least twice, and have not rebooted Kodi since the error occurred. It should also be noted that if you’re going to post your Kodi error log to our discussion forums for assistance, please post the link to the log and not the log contents itself.
