Log files

Command line converters generate the following files in the %APPDATA%\AVS4YOU\AVSVideoConverter folder (the example is given for AVS Video Converter, but is valid for all AVS converters, the only difference will be in the folder and the file names):

  • AVSVideoConverter.log - the log file with the description of the operations performed by the application and the errors occurred;
  • AVSVideoConverter.rpt - the report file with each conversion task result recording and the errors occurred;
  • ConversionProgress.rpt - the report file with the current conversion task progress value (0% ... 100%).

The current conversion process status can be detected using the AVSVideoConverter.rpt and ConversionProgress.rpt files.

AVSVideoConverter.rpt has the following format:

[Application name and version]

[Date and time of report creation]

[Conversion result]
[ERROR]

[Date and time of report closing]

The Conversion result can accept the following value variants:

  • NOT STARTED
  • INTERRUPTED
  • FAILED
  • SUCCEEDED

If the conversion result value is NOT STARTED or FAILED, the next lines will contain the description of the ERROR.
