I am new to the Artwork Downloader therefore sorry for asking this question, could be that it has already answered somewhere in the long thread.
In the AD-Wiki I found the following "Each TV Show/Movie must have its own folder!"
Is this really needed because I thought that AD only places a link in the DB/Library where to find the artwork. Or will AD really download the Artwork to the folder location where that media is stored?
I am on Kodi 15.2 using a MySQL DB for the Library.
1. AFAIK, Kodi requires TV shows to be in their own folders, regardless of AD. Probably a better question is whether season subfolders are required for AD (not sure of the answer to this).
2. AD will download "extrafanart" and / or art locally depending on settings. This requires movies to be in separate folders (extrafanart subfolder in the movie folder, and local art is just named like poster.jpg without moviename in the filename).
