v16 Artists Artwork Questions
#9
Once metadata is scraped into the library, from NFO or online, then it will stay there until you remove or in some way change the music files or their physical location. But NFO are the means to get local info into the library, and useful to keep in case you start from scratch for some reason. All I am saying is the NFO are not used everytime Kodi is running.

For local artwork it is a matter of putting it where Kodi expects to find it (or you will have to load manually for every artist and album) or embedding at least the album art in the music files.

Kodi generally "caches" for speed of access. Although not permanent in theory, there are plenty of times people have issues with images in cache that they can't get rid of. There are changes in v17 to get Kodi to clear some of its cache more often to fix some problems it causes, but not images AFAIK. Images don't drop out of cache because of infrequent use.

The limitations of NFO are frustrating, have been like that a long time and I do hope to fix. But I'm one guy and progress is slow.
