[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility
New version (0.0.5) - see installation instructions in first post for download details.

Added "c" option to re-cache all artwork. It uses JSON to query the media library for all artwork, and then retrieves each item of artwork so that it is cached locally. Items that are already in the cache will be ignored. Use the "d" option to remove items from the cache, and then refresh the cache.

This is much easier than laboriously browsing through your media library while the Pi slowly re-caches all the missing items!

To run:
./texturecache.py c

-- or --

./texturecache.py c movies
./texturecache.py c sets
./texturecache.py c tvshows
./texturecache.py c artists
./texturecache.py c albums
./texturecache.py c songs

-- or --

./texturecache.py c tvshows "big bang theory"
./texturecache.py c movies "harry potter"

If no additional arguments are supplied when using the "c" command, all but songs will be refreshed (ie. movies+sets+tvshows+albums+artists).

A third argument can be used to filter queries, partially matching on movie/set/tvshow/album/song title, or artist name.

As items of artwork are processed, their type (poster, fanart, etc.) will be displayed. A "+" alongside the artwork type will indicate that the item was not found in the cache, and has now been cached. The lack of a "+" indicates that the item was found in the cache, and it has been skipped (not retrieved).

This has been tested with a media library hosted on a remote MySQL server and NFS content, and is working well. Should work with local databases and other media solutions.
Texture Cache Maintenance Utility: Preload your texture cache for optimal UI performance. Remotely manage media libraries. Purge unused artwork to free up space. Find missing media. Configurable QA check to highlight metadata issues. Aid in diagnosis of library and cache related problems.
