I was reading these 2 links about vlc log files.
Is there a reason why this doesn't work?
VLC -> Tools -> Preferences -> Select "ALL" -> Advanced -> Logging
I created the log file location and file. I also changed the verbosity to 2. I don't understand what the problem is.
The command line method works but I would prefer the gui method.
vlc --file-logging VLCLOG --verbose=2
