[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility

Don't think scrapers have any say on that part... like, if someone wanted to code a scraper that didn't do anything if no poster is found, I don't think that's possible because Kodi as a program does the thumbnail extraction as a separate thing.

Yes, it's Settings > Media settings > Videos > Extract thumbnails from video files.

Kodi is only extracting the thumbnails because your scraper isn't setting any other suitable artwork (ie. a poster).

The script has nothing to do with what metadata is actually scraped. The script will delete the movie, then instruct Kodi to perform a library update which should hopefully re-scrape the movie that has just been deleted. This should produce the same results as the "Refresh" button on the movie Info page. How and what Kodi scrapes is entirely down to the scraper you are using for the source being scraped, and how you have configured Kodi (eg. extract thumbnails).

Can you provide metadata details of a movie (ie. "jd movies <moviename>") before running "texturecache.py qax", and the metadata after qax, and also the directory contents for the movie? A debug-log from kodi showing the movie scan would also be helpful.

If your artwork is correctly named, and is supported by the scraper, then it should be found and set on each movie automatically. Note that most Kodi scrapers only support limited artwork types (eg. fanart, poster) - if you need anything more exotic than that you'll need an add-on such as Artwork Downloader, or mklocal.py script.
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.
