[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility
You need to at least enable debug logging..

"special://thumbnails" should map to your ~/.kodi/userdata/Thumbnails folder - have you checked if the files are actually there?

Sometimes Kodi will return an error when "downloading" (ie. caching) artwork which results in the script believing the artwork couldn't be cached, but Kodi does in fact successfully cache the artwork, so it's possibly a false negative - search your cache to see if the artwork has actually been cached, ie.:
Code:
texturecache.py s tt0066206_fanart.gif
If the above search lists the cached item (the second column will be something like e/e79ceed5.gif) in addition to your original artwork in the "animatedgifs" folder then it's just a false negative and nothing to worry about.

Alternatively:
Code:
texturecache.py nc movies Patton

will list any artwork for the movie "Patton" that remains uncached, so if this lists your gifs then it's definitely not being cached.

It's also possible that Kodi simply cannot cache gif artwork - it's not really a format I'm familiar with. If you can view the GIF artwork in the Kodi GUI, but the artwork remains uncached (as far as this script is concerned) then Kodi isn't caching GIF artwork, or it's caching GIF artwork differently to how it caches non-GIF artwork.
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.
