The VLC media player sometimes errors out with the message "Check the log for details":
But where is the log?
What you need to do:
<Ctrl>-Mor click Top Menu => Tools => Messages
- Increase the verbosity to "1 (warnings)":
You can increase the verbosity even more, but this usually creates so much output that you cannot find the actual error anymore.
- Leave the messages window open and recreate the problematic behaviour
