[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility
Thanks for your reply, --ignorebadprefix works when combined with running multiple times, but now I ran into another problem: one of my sources has a space in the path, like 'Films NAS', so I get an error about NAS not being a recognized argument. I tried putting the path between quotes, but that doesn't seem to work. How do I make it read the proper path?

Paste the command you are running, and the error you are seeing.

Command: C:\Python34\python.exe G:\texturecache.py jd movies | C:\Python34\python.exe G:\mklocal.py --local \\DISKSTATION1\Films NAS\ --prefix smb://DISKSTATION1/Films NAS/ --artwork fanart poster --output fixup4.dat --ignorebadprefix

And in cmd (I'm on Win7) it then gives me a short usage example and says NAS\ and NAS/ are unrecognized arguments.

Should work. Probably.

Already tried that, but it gives the same message, as if the double quotes are ignored or something.

You have two options:

1) You can use the purge option to remove any url that matches a specific pattern, eg. ./texturecache.py purge all https://yt3 https://i.ytimg.com would purge cached artwork that is associated with the YouTube addon (there may be other urls).

2) You can use the P (prune) option which will remove artwork that isn't associated with media library items, so this should delete cached addon artwork (ie. YouTube).

That's something else entirely and not something this script can help with, I'm afraid.

Hi,

i have an issue with my kodi setup : i use mysql sharing and i think i had a database issue so i exported my library from my main Kodi, deleted mysql database then imported library on my main Kodi. It seems that my data base issue is gone but now i have another issue :

one of my client (librelec) doesn't show any of my thumbnails. I deleted the entire Textures13.db+Thumbnails folder, rebooted Kodi : same issue !

If i manually rescan one by one my items ("information" : "refresh") : it display "actual image" : nothing is displayed but if i choose another one, it works.

Do you know what's the problem and why deleting Textures13.db+Thumbnails folder didn't solved the issue ?

Should i use Texture Cache Maintenance Utility ?

Thanks

Nope, there can be many reasons - if you're using remote artwork maybe it's no longer available, or can't be accessed by the client. If you're using local artwork, have you re-imported your library from a local mount location (ie. "D:\Movies") that is not accessible to another networked client (you must use smb:// or nfs://)?

Sure, it will try and re-cache your artwork, but it can only do that if Kodi is able to access the artwork, which presumably it's not able to for some reason.

To work out where you artwork is located, dump the metadata for one of your movies and paste the results: eg. texturecache.py jd movies Avatar.

 Hi,
Thanks for your reply.

Nope ! I re-imported my library from a network connected folder : "K:". So it could be the cause : i should browse and choose the smb:// path when i import a library backuped ?
When i backup, should i also choose the network path are not ?
I checked my backup : there are images files on it, i didn't know that.
Just to be sure we talk about the same thing; this is my library backup :
Image

I resolved the issue with your help : i exported my library from my main Kodi (i choosed smb:// network path, i don't know if it is import for the export), i deleted my mysql db, i imported my library on Kodi from the smb:// path : i started my LibreElec Kodi client : it works, i have all my thumbs ! 

Thanks a lot !

This tool seems to do a bit more than update the texturecache, so can I use this tool to add a genre to a specific movie?

In my use case, I would want to add the genre 'Extras' to movies that I have Extras/Bonus Features for.
