[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility
(2015-01-04, 11:54)Mychale Wrote: but how do I update the missing art work and data (plot/plot outline/rating/...) for both movies and tv shows?

For movies, you could use:
Code:
texturecache.py imdb movies @imdb.fields=plot,plotoutline,votes,rating,top250,runtime,country,genre,director,writer,year | texturecache.py set
and this will "freshen up" your movies with current data from imdb.

I don't have a source for TV shows, so you'll have to re-scrape or re-fresh from NFOs.

For any missing artwork you'll need to look at an addon such as Artwork Downloader, or an external media manager.

(2015-01-04, 11:54)Mychale Wrote: I'm now thinking of backing up my data, and starting fresh. I have .nfo files and images saved with the media is separate folders. I recently ran a separate file export before upgrading to Kodi.

Sometimes that's best.

Exporting may be a good idea for metadata (plot etc.), but not so good IMHO for artwork (it will be the sometimes lower quality version from your cache).

For artwork (and even NFOs) I'd always recommend the use of a media manager instead, ie. Ember etc. Or try mklocal.py, as this will store only original artwork in your file system (assuming it is still available) and not the quality-compromised cached version.

(2015-01-04, 11:54)Mychale Wrote: I just want to backup the watched flags and "date added to library" for movies and tv shows, playcount and resume times would be good too. What would be a good way to go about that? Would this script even help with that?

Code:
texturecache.py watched movies backup movies.dat
texturecache.py watched tvshows backup tvshows.dat
will backup your playcount, restore points and watched flags for movies and tvshows, respectively. Replace "backup" with "restore" to restore this information once you've rescanned your library.

"date added to library" is (by default) taken from the modification date of the media file, so there's no need to back that up.

Will this help with my MOVIES & TV SHOW icons on my main screen not populating pictures automatically? All of my vids have fanart. They actually show when I move up to the widgets, but by default, they're usually black on the buttons.

If not, what would cause this to happen?

I use openelec, how do I use this utility? It's not very clear. I've tried a few times and am completely lost.

I ran the C after running the c because I was getting a lot of errors during the c process, this was on my main Kodi box. Still working on that, but the RPi I have is missing a lot of art work, so I'm starting to work on that.

@Milhouse - I added a [RPI] section to my .cfg file with IP and MAC address for the RPi. I can connect and started running the c process first. It seems to have cached files from a external backup I did long ago. I am getting errors like this:

Can I run a process to clear the "F:\xbmc_videodb_2013-09-05\" part of the image location and have it look in the folder with the media? or is this a MySQL data issue instead I have to fix elsewhere?

Thanks for replying and keeping me sane during this process. I also just read the reply from Post #1231, and will try as suggested. =D

Try running mklocal.py, use --nokeep to clear artwork that no longer exists. If the artwork exists alongside the movies, it will replace the existing artwork.

Ok. some info for you:

Main Kodi box has:
L drive mapped to L:\Videos folder on network share server that holds all media.
Media is separated info 5 folders:
L:\Videos\13 & Older\Movies - so kids do not have access.
L:\Videos\13 & Older\TV Shows - so kids do not have access.
L:\Videos\Kids 12 and Under\Movies - mapped so I can see them too.
L:\Videos\Kids 12 and Under\TV Shows - so I cant see these (Barney, Bob the Builder, etc.)
L:\Videos\Kids 12 and Under\TV Shows\Big Kids TV - so I can see these (Thundercats, Gargoyles, Animaniacs, etc.)

Basically, Adult profiles have all 5 mappings and the kids have their 2 and Big Kids TV shows up as a folder to them like a set.

Kodi paths are shown as:
smb://MEDIA-SERVER/FTP Main/Videos/13 & Older/Movies/
smb://MEDIA-SERVER/FTP Main/Videos/13 & Older/TV Shows/
smb://MEDIA-SERVER/FTP Main/Videos/Kids 12 and Under/Movies/
smb://MEDIA-SERVER/FTP Main/Videos/Kids 12 and Under/TV Shows/
smb://MEDIA-SERVER/FTP Main/Videos/Kids 12 and Under/TV Shows/Big Kids TV/

with that I tried to come up with the mklocal.py script, since just entering mklocal.py --nokeep as suggested didnt seem to do anything:
Code:
texturecache.py jd movies | mklocal.py --local L:\Videos --prefix "smb://Media-Server/FTP Main/Videos" --nokeep --artwork fanart poster clearlogo clearart --output fixup.dat
then pipe it to:
Code:
cat fixup.dat | texturecache.py set
to set the changes to MySQL database all the correct paths.

Does this look right? Am I close?

Also, from your reply in post #1231 I tried to run the suggested code to update from IMDB:
Code:
texturecache.py imdb movies @imdb.fields=plot,plotoutline,votes,rating,top250,runtime,country,genre,director​,writer,year | texturecache.py set
but I get the following error:
Code:
C:\>texturecache.py imdb movies @imdb.fields=plot,plotoutline,votes,rating,top250,runtime,country,genre,director?,writer,year | texturecache.py set
Traceback (most recent call last):

    return _default_decoder.decode(s)
  File "C:\Python34\lib\json\decoder.py", line 343, in decode
    obj, end = self.raw_decode(s, idx=_w(s, 0).end())

    raise ValueError(errmsg("Expecting value", s, err.value)) from None
ValueError: Expecting value: line 1 column 1 (char 0)

This seems to be an error in the script, but I could be wrong.

Thank you for your help and time.

Yes, that looks fine. You might also want to add "--readonly" which would stop it from trying to download any remote artwork (assuming you have any remote - ie. internet based - artwork urls in your library).

Tips when running mklocal.py for the first time:

#1: Try using a single movie, ie. "texturecache.py jd movies avatar" until you get it working correctly - it saves time
#2: View the output of mklocal.py before running it through "texturecache.py set" (removing the --output argument will cause the change details to be written to the console)
#3: Add --verbose if you don't get the expected results, then try to understand what mklocal.py is doing and maybe why it is failing
#4: Only once you're happy with the proposed changes should you run the changes through "texturecache.py set"
#5: If you still don't get the expected results, upload the full console output to pastebin and paste the url here. The output from "texturecache.py jd ..." would also be useful.

I think this is some sort of cut and paste error - note the "?" after director. When I try your string (copying & pasting directly from the forum) I get the following error in the texturecache.log (which you can enable with @logfile=):
Code:

Note the unicode rubbish that has been appended to "director".

Clean up your command line, and try again.

I thought it was a mistake I was making, will try that once I get the art work locations fixed. Thank you, I would never have seen it.

With your tips, I came up with:

and it seems to run fine, fixing up the bad image location to the correct smb path, just like I wanted. Verbose output is showing:

That completed as expected, Output file posted to here:

but, when I tried to run:
Code:
cat "c:\Data Files\fixup.dat" | texturecache.py set
I get the following error:
Code:

'cat' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

I think this is a windows issue though, 'cat' does not seem to be a DOS command.

Sorry for the huge post.

What kind of system is this you are using (what OS, etc.)? Have you configured RPC_IPVERSION in texturecache.cfg (you shouldn't).

The script is failing to open a socket, without generating an exception, which doesn't seem possible based on the code...

I suggest you try debugging the code in the getSocket() call to try and work out what is going on because I don't see how it could fail in this way.

Later today I can provide you with a special version with additional getSocket() diagnostics, but right now my thoughts are that there appears to be something screwy with your system.

I did that one first and I saw

So I changed the XMBC IP in Texturecache.cfg to localhost and ran it again and got.. Which looks much better but not sure. Thanks for your help!

Yeah so now I have been able to run texturecache.py successfully.
Untill I hit a exeption in thread 8.Connectionrefusederror. Winerror10061 No connection could be made because the target machine activity refused it.

I'm new to this forum and I make my first post because i have some difficulties with this script ... which should inspire the Kodi team to manage their cache ;-)

I'd like to delete all the unnecessary files in my cache, and the option 'P' seems to be there for that ... BUT when I try, it stay for ages (don't know if it is stuck or not) on "Loading pictures ...". I don't want to prune the pictures because they never change, so not a lot of work to do there.

Is there a way to reduce the scop of the prune option to the movies only ?

Thx for your help.

PS : I'm using a raspberry Pi and have the latest Kodi helix on openelec.

EDIT : It just stoped with a "killed" :-( Will try it again with logs ... ?

OK so there's a socket timeout occurring, presumably due to a slow network, which isn't being treated as a re-raisable exception. Oh well.

What you could do is increase the RPC connection timeout used by the script with "rpc.ctimeout=2.0" (default is 0.5 seconds). There's a similar connection timeout for webserver connections. "webserver.ctimeout" (default is again 0.5 seconds). But if using localhost works, stick with that.

Look at the kodi log, it's probably dead (or dying). There's a known problem with the web server crashing on Windows.
