[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility

This is for music library. When new files are scanned, if a new album is found the first album artist will be assigned and the scanner will look for (local art) folder.jpg and fanart.jpg in the album's parent folder. If it exists it will be added to the album artist and in the database "art" table. The problem is if there is more than one album artist or compilation only (song) artists. There is no mechanism to assign local art for these during a scan. IF the artist is scraped, then it is possible to use the "artist info" screen to browse for local thumb and fanart. If the artist didn't scrape, "artist info" isn't accessible, without setting "lastScraped" in the artist table, either by "import library" or directly updating the artist table. Even when the "artist info"screen is available, it is very tedious to use the UI to browse and set local art.

What I am looking for is something that can go through the "artist" and "art" table and find all artists where thumb and or fanart are not set and provide some means of updating the art table. It is sort of possible to do this with the music library import, but the only way I get it to work is to use the
elements, but it seems like if you do this yes you can get local art into the art table but it locks out any url/online art that might have scraped.

Any ideas?

I don't really know much about updating the media library database directly, particularly the music database - you might have more luck asking in the Universal Music Scraper thread. I've only concerned myself with JSON queries when extracting data from the media library (or making changes), but unfortunately there are no JSON methods that would allow you to make artwork changes in the music database.
