[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility
Thank you again Milhouse for answering my questions Blush

Today when I fired up kodi, the banner for Enron was immediately visible. Running the first query you suggested returns this:

Code:
./texturecache.py s enron

Hmmmm... all present and accounted for.

SideQuestion: What do I add to the CFG file to have any ExtraThumbs or ExtraFanArt listed ?

Code:
./texturecache.py c movies enron

If it says it couldn't download any artwork then that means Kodi couldn't access the artwork.

OK, my understanding is fuzzy here - if the image only exists in the media folder with the movie (ie: no online source because it was manually created by me), does the script grab it from the folder -OR- is the caching/re-caching operation limited to internet-downloadable items only ?

Code:
./texturecache.py c movies

will cache all movie artwork that is defined in your media library.

Ahhhh... do you mean "all files named in the Textures database" -OR- "all the local files found within the media folders" ?

Last night I ran the "./texturecache.py c movies" command, and it did not seem to put my homemade banner into the cache. I then used the context menu to "Choose art' and select the banner... Is this the operation that finally wrote it into the database ? As you can tell, I'm struggling with what does - or does not - trigger the update.

FromAnotherAngle: I take it that if an image is NOT found in the Thumbnails folder, kodi CANNOT put it on the screen.

Many times I've had to repeat the "Choose art" steps for these homemade images, because something has knocked them out. I've made it a frequent practice to clean the library and export everything to local files.

Is it possible my homemade art is not being recorded in the local NFOs, and at some time in the future a re-scrape wipes it out from the database & Thumbnails folder ? (grasping at straws here Confused )

Thanks for insight & corrections.
