[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility
Hi Milhouse,

I am using Kodi on a RPI, and manage my collection with Media Companion (MC). I have configured Kodi to use only local information (nfo, thumbs, art) and update them with MC. If I have read correctly, there are some options to tell Kodi to rescan the nfo files that have been changed by MC. I would like to mass update the Kodi database, without going by every updated movie by hand. So:

One option is to set to None the folder type, then to movies, and Kodi will rescan the nfo's.

Other is to delete the Textures13.db file, and reboot Kodi.

This: Add-on:XBMC_Library_Auto_Update (wiki) won't work since Kodi won't reread already parsed nfo files.

And the latest one is to use texturecache.py, with "qax" option.

This option looks like the easiest and can be inserted in a cron task to be done repeatedly. Problem is that when running texturecache.py, Kodi doesn't seem to notice the nfo changes (for example, collection sets are still wrong after being corrected in the nfo file).

Am I right, or did I make some mistake in my reasoning?

Thanks in advance.
