[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility
(2014-01-08, 05:15)MilhouseVH Wrote: That's weird, I couldn't get XBMC to cache the original full size picture (the second row in your example above), although I only tested the "slideshow" functionality - maybe an addon has caused the original artwork to be cached, which IMHO is probably not a good thing due to the extra storage requirements, whereas slideshow appears to avoid the cache by accessing the artwork direct.

I did some trials on my windows laptop with XBMC 12.3 + Aeon Nox skin - similar to my actual media center which is xbmcbuntu. I added a folder with 8 trial pics and when I open the folder, the thumbnails are created and here is the output of texturecache.py f

The skin uses InfoWall view by default which shows a larger image to the side when I just use the arrow keys to move through the pictures. When I selected one picture, 1 additional row was added to the database. When I browsed through all the 8 pictures with arrow keys, this is what it looked like:

So, if the skin needs a larger preview, I guess these additional db lines & thumbnails are created.

Thanks for the last update. I now understand what xbmc/skin is doing and I've your script with all options to clean my cache! Smile
