Letting Kodi generate meta data?

Once all Kodi clients have been connected properly, each of the Kodi clients will be able to scrape for new content in the sources.
The metadata of the scraped content will be stored in the video database, for images only the URLs to their internet location will be stored.
Each Kodi client also has a local database that checks if the cache of thumbnails, posters, et cetera is uptodate.
If necessary, each Kodi client will download the related fanart into its cache.

That will not differ when you use a local database or a centralized database.
You can refresh the metadata of a movie or a tvshow/episode manually, and then select the correct entry.
