Hello everybody!
i've been using mysql database for a while and now (after setting up a new device) i noted that some movies are missing artwork... the movie itself is recognised.
here's an example:
Movie: A Scanner Darkly
Poster in mysql database: http://image.tmdb.org/t/p/w500/wS0QhF2RT...HzNAMx.jpg
the file does not exist so it makes sense that my clients don't show any poster... i've read (somewhere on this forum, can't find link...) that tmdb moved to httpS so i tried to display https://image.tmdb.org/t/p/w500/wS0QhF2R...HzNAMx.jpg but that doesn't exist either.
if i refresh the movie information on a client and choose the same movie the artwork is downloaded as expected.
do i have to do this for every movie (losing watched status) or is there another way? what would happen if i delete art entry in the the database?
if needed i could post logs later, atm i can't access any clients...

No, TMDB deleted tens of thousands of images.

Yes, you have to do this for every affected movie.
To preserve your watched status, use the WatchedList addon... https://kodi.tv/addons/matrix/service.watchedlist

Nothing. You would still get no artwork.

Save your artwork locally to avoid this problem in future.

artwork dump already installed.

so no i'll have to refresh all the movies manually...

thanks for the info!

edit1: is it possible to map the refresh information to a key?
edit2: deleted source, cleared library, added source, scanned source and run WL, everything good!
