New location for Encode Logs in Big Sur

Post by pbarker1701 »

Description of problem or question:
For those of you running macOS 11 aka Big Sur, the logs have been moved slightly.

Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):
The correct path to finding Handbrake logs is now:
/Users/Username/Library/Containers/HandBrake/Data/Library/Application Support/HandBrake/EncodeLogs
the old fr.handbrake folder is now called fr.handbrake.HandBrakeXPCService and it no longer contains the Handbrake logs
but rather other data used by the program. The rest of the data in the folder appears not be used by Handbrake at all
but rather aliases to data from and for other sources.

HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):

Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):
macOS 11 Big Sur

HandBrake Activity Log ***required*** (see How-to get an activity log)

Code: Select all

/Users/Username/Library/Containers/HandBrake/Data/Library/Application Support/HandBrake/EncodeLogs

No, the path is the same as before, but Finder display the container name as "HandBrake" instead of "fr.handbrake.HandBrake".
Anyway, you can right click on the Activity Window and select the option to open the logs folder, or right click on a queue item (I can't remember if it's a new 1.4 addition or not).
