[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility
There are several options that require direct access to the Thumbnails folder - these options are: "f", "F", "r", "R", "S", "X", "Xd"

All other options are able to work remotely (ie. script running on Windows, updating an RPi Kodi client) because they make use of JSON APIs. There are no JSON APIs for the above options.

There are two workarounds for the direct-access issue:

1) Mount the remote Thumbnails folder on your local machine and configure the script to use the locally mapped Thumbnails folder. How you mount the Thumbnails folder on your Windows PC is a challenge you'll need to solve as it depends on your remote client exporting the Thumbnails folder in some way (a Samba server would be easiest for Windows)

2) Use scp/ssh to run the script directly on the remote client, but under the control of the local machine. On a Linux machine you could do the following:
Code:
scp texturecache.py [email protected]:/tmp
ssh [email protected] -C "/tmp/texturecache.py R"

On Windows you can obtain scp and ssh from the PuTTY download page (aka pscp and plink). You can then script the transfer and running of texturecache.py assuming your remote client has ssh enabled. If you configure both systems to use private keys you don't need to worry about passwords.

Or there's the Linux subsystem now in Windows 10.

(Or don't use Windows) Smile
