[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility
"Error" corresponds to those items that were unable to be downloaded (you should have seen those listed). Not much you can do about those as they're probably no longer available remotely, so you need to use alternative artwork - your best bet would be to download alternative artwork localy and then replace the missing artwork in your library via the GUI (as we're only talking about 5 items, until you're up to speed with mklocal.py which would do this for you automatically).

"Ignored" items are those artwork types that were not in your @cache.artwork list. If you add @logfile=tc.log" it will log detailed information during the run which will include details of the ignored artwork (search for "Ignored") - not sure why it should ignore thumbnails though, upload your log somewhere if you need further help.

Edit: Oh yes, there's a second reason to ignore items - if the artwork matches an entry in "cache.ignore.types" (this defaults to "^video, ^music") the item will be ignored. The default settings avoid trying to cache embedded video or music artwork, as these can't be cached - thumbnail extraction is a GUI process and not supported by the web server which is being used here to cache artwork. Again, this is logged (search for "Ignored").

For mklocal.py, maybe start with this post - some of the arguments might have changed, but hopefully you should get the gist of it. Be aware that it will download new artwork unless you add the --readonly argument. Nothing will be changed in your media library unless you process the output from mklocal.py through "texturecache.py set".
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.
